Product Description
Teaching students to meet the Common Core’s expectations for argumentative writing can be a challenge. Teenagers seem very skilled at making claims (perhaps due to their natural inclination to having very strong opinions!?), but seem to struggle to find and use effective evidence to support those claims.

This 3-day lesson is designed to ease students into using evidence to support claims. Students first learn to identify and evaluate the six main types of evidence before being asked to find evidence on their own using the internet.

What’s included:

✔ Lesson Presentation
✔ Notes and Examples
✔ Evidence Ranking Cards
✔ Student Practice
✔ Article for Student Practice
✔ Evidence Collector version 1
✔ Evidence Collector version 2
✔ Teacher Guide
*You will receive PDF copies as well as digital copies through Google so that you can edit or assign digitally if you'd like*

Objectives:

★ Define and provide examples for the six types of argumentative evidence (quotations, expert opinions, anecdotes, statistics, facts, and examples).
★ Evaluate effectiveness of evidence
★ Identify evidence used in mentor text
★ Use evidence to construct effective argumentative paragraph
★ Research evidence in support of a claim
