This poster walks students through the steps of structuring and composing an argument. I use this for having my students write constructed responses to our historical controversies prompts. Components include: introduction, statement (thesis), evidence (from a source), elaboration, counter-argument (and rebuttal), and conclusion.
This could also be used in Language Arts classes!
I also sell a set of sentence starters / frames posters that correspond to the poster for the evidence, elaboration, and counter-argument components.
