Description

My go-to lesson plan for teaching claims, evidence, and reasoning, this lesson compares making an argument to riding a rollercoaster. Each part – claims, evidence, and reasoning – is a different step to the process of strapping your reader in and keeping them on board with you to your kick-butt conclusion.

In this lesson, you’ll find a detailed lesson plan, slides, and a handout to help students practice claims, evidence, and reasoning through philosophical chairs. You’ll find the middle of the lesson is the perfect time to stop students’ debating, explain each part of claim, evidence, and reasoning, and then require students to apply it to their own verbal arguments for the rest of class. It’s a packed lesson, but one that has the potential to set up your entire unit! I won’t teach argumentative writing without it.

This lesson plan includes:

  • Content standards
  • Language standards
  • 1 detailed lesson plan
  • 1 Editable handout accompanying the lesson plan
  • Powerpoint slides for the lesson

This lesson appears in the following bundle:
