Hands down, a TOP resource! In this activity, students will use the power of images to deliver their argument. They'll hone skills in line of reasoning + real-world communication. But in this argument...NO words allowed!
A healthy dose of 5, detailed lesson plans which situate writing in real contexts and ~recall to life~ an appreciation for writing in your ELA classroom! Students apply writing in practical ways that directly connect with the way we use writing in the real world!
The elements of an argument can be tricky for young (or reluctant!) writers to understand. But the 'tree of reasoning' activity makes learning *visual* by likening the structure of a tree to the line of reasoning in an argument.
The perfect project to practice student writing skills while building classroom community at the same time. Just like the network of connections they build on social media in the real world, your students will create the analog version of that right inside your classroom!
Are you smitten by the idea of using educational escape rooms in your ELA class but hesitant to design one yourself? Escape rooms are a great way to get your students immediately involved in the classroom while making the learning process a memorable one!
In this project-based writing experience, students use argumentative writing tactics + persuasive techniques to advocate for something they believe in. They'll gain communication skills that practically apply to the writing they'll do in the real world *and* sharpen social-emotional + soft skills, too!
