A New Way to Teach.....
We all need a plan to teach argumentative essay writing to our students. In this document, you will find a clearly stated, complete plan and implementation (curriculum) for the teaching of Argumentative Essays to students in grades 5-9. The objectives are taken straight from the Common Core State Standards, and this plan is written to directly address the objectives stated in the Common Core State Standards. W.7.
This course, using the Scaffolded Instructional Method is directed toward 7th grade, but can easily be adapted to meet the needs of middle school grades 5-9.
This curriculum as a Project Based Learning approach, works very well with the Workshop Model because students do most of the work using hands-on methods, incorporating critical thinking skills with rigor and relevance while the teacher is able to move about the room stopping to conference with selected students and groups of students asking targeted questions to draw out student critical thinking.
