Writing Claims and Counterclaims Paragraph Writing
This is a great resource to practice argument writing. Students create claims for given counterclaims and write their own counterclaims for the given claims.
The second page allows students to choose a pair and draft them into paraGraphs.
Extend this activitiy and have students draft into a complete argument/opinion essay.
Students can even do some research to research actual facts to support each claim and counterclaim argument.
Remember each argument must have 2 details that actually support it!
Students love the freedom to voice their opinions about the claims and counterclaims!
