Plenary Sentence Starters For Persuasive Essays

This day marks the end of a unit of study focused on argument reading and writing. ELA class is not the only place that students produce this type of writing. They have also written arguments or persuasive essays in social studies, science and math classes. To determine student progress in this particular type of writing during sixth grade, they are given an extended period of time to move through the entire writing process. They will have two 90-minute blocks to research a topic, determine the pros and cons, draft, revise, edit and submit a final copy of a multi-paragraph essay.

Hopefully, each student will be engaged by one of the two topics that were chosen for this assessment. Background knowledge may help each person decide to write about a topic related to sports or one about pets. I read aloud each prompt and allow the students a few minutes to consider them and make a choice. It is interesting to note that the class is divided half and half between each!

The two articles that accompany the sports prompt are here and here. And the two articles that accompany the pets prompt are here and here.
