This grade 6/7 argumentative assignments allows students to examine a variety of different arguments. Students use the form in this packet to establish the claim and reasoning for each side of the argument and then, i turn, make a reasoned judgement as to which side is "right" or "wrong" based on the each argument made. This packet also has a form by which students can write a brief essay bout which side they feel made the best claim and why. This is a wonderful, fun, and engaging way to teach your students about making objective arguments. (RI 6.8/7.8)
Disclaimer: The product I am selling is the form and writing task that I designed and use within my classroom to correspond with arguments. The arguments were not created by me. I simply provide links where you may access the prepared arguments as they appear online. They are an amazing resource!
