A fun way to get students writing argumentative essays that incorporates CHOCOLATE! My students loved this lesson. It is very in depth and teaches them how to support their claims with evidence. Includes music video, both chocolate texts, and a fun activity. The 4 question ticket out the door includes these questions:
What is an argumentative essay?
What is a claim?
How do you support a claim?
What is the purpose of putting information on to a T-Chart?
It is very simple and reviews what the students should already know!
I surprised my students with candy at the end of the lesson as well. It was a big hit!
