After reading "The Lady, or The Tiger" by Frank R. Stockton, students will write an argumentative piece, arguing their answer to the question - What did the Princess choose at the end of the story? Why do you think that? And how do you know?
This assignment is on a half sheet that you can have students glue into their writer's notebook or staple to the top of their paper.
This assignment comes with a scaffolded example to help students start their argument.
Concepts like main claim, evidence, textual evidence, and elements of an argument should be taught before this lesson.
