Writing sophisticated counterarguments for persuasive, argument, and research papers is often a skill that is not directly modeled in a way that students can easily imitate. This engaging step-by-step video aimed directly at middle schoolers - demonstrates EXACTLY how students can write a counterargument using 4 simple steps in a leverageable and easy to understand format. Students will learn how to write counterarguments for their own argument papers and research topics as they are shown multiple mentor texts examples of strong counterarguments to follow.
Use the video as a teaching aid - or simply show the video DIRECTLY to your students, pausing at certain times while your students follow on with the steps given.
The approach in the video is the: 'I do - We do - You do' - similar to the stages of any typical lesson.
ALL SLIDES shown in the video are offered as supplementary material FREE with this video.
Video Lessons - are worth the investment. Have your best lessons prepackaged in a plug and play format - perfect if students are absent or for substitute teachers.
Simply sit back and let this video do your teaching. I will be adding dozens of teaching videos similar to this one that uses this same approach to lesson delivery. 'I do - We do - You do'
I also have an advanced level video on writing nonfiction claims and leads and endings in my store. These would be perfect compliments to this session.
