Description:Argumentative Writing Students will work to improve their argumentative writing by flexing their critical thinking muscles. We will begin the semester by analyzing written work and developing a baseline for what good argument writing looks like. We will read and discuss scenarios that involve the need for solid argument and text based evidence to persuade an audience, developing a foundation for writing our own arguments. Students will then work together to solve a real world issue. In a proposal argument, students will describe a significant problem and a reasonable solution, applying all of the skills developed in the first semester. We will also improve our critical thinking through reading, writing, and discussion, and will attend to basic research skills, including MLA documentation. Additionally, we will practice the writing traits of word choice, sentence structure, ideas and organization. Lessons for the first semester will come from Argumentative Writing and Critical Thinking 6-12. We will also explore arguments in other texts—in popular culture, advertisements, and websites. This will include the reading of To Kill a Mockingbird, and stories by Edgar Allen Poe. Students need to have access to a laptop or tablet that they can bring to class and use at home for research and word processing.
Requirements:If you are in 7th grade, you must have taken my Middle School English class as a prerequisite. Bring a laptop or tablet, paper, pencils, highlighters, binder or other organizational system.
