This product includes lesson plans, Powerpoints, and resources such as rubrics, graphic organizers, and handouts for the StudySync Grade 7 Unit 4 Extended Writing Project Argument Essay. This packet is for 18 days of instruction: read an article about invasive species, introduce the project, complete a prewrite, focus on audience and purpose, conduct research and take notes, write a thesis, write supporting details, create an outline, write introduction and conclusion paragraphs, learn about citations and works cited, write the body paragraphs, write the first draft, revise and edit, peer revise and edit, and write and submit the final draft. The lesson plans correspond with the Powerpoints, each including a warm-up activity, input from the teacher, output from students, and a wrap-up activity. Powerpoints include sentence frames for answers to questions, as well as videos, pictures, and interesting designs. While this packet is meant for 18 days to use alongside the Study Sync lessons (introductions, models, and think questions), it can be modified to suit your needs and time requirements.
