Introduction to Argument Writing


In this first lesson, students are introduced to argument writing. The lesson begins with an introduction to the writing process and to annotation. Then, student pairs or small groups examine an argument model and discuss what they notice about the way the writer organizes the model and appeals to readers. The teacher then provides direct instruction on the components of effective argument writing, using the model as an example. Student learning is assessed via participation in a pair or small group activity in which students brainstorm items for the class's Argument Writing Checklist.
