This packet helps your student outline their essay that pairs with Unit 2 of the Common Core NYS Modules. It guides the students in writing a 5 paragraph Argumentative essay answering the following prompt: Atticus says, “Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started is no reason for us not to try to win” (Chapter 9, page 76). Now that you have read the whole text, what do you think? Does it make sense for Atticus to take a stand to defend Tom Robinson? Give evidence from the text to support your thinking, and be sure to take into account what people who disagree might say.
I use this format for all of my essay assignments and it really helps the students stay on track and organized! Hope you enjoy!
