Lessons for writing, reading, and discussing arguments

By Michael Smith, Jeffrey D Wilhelm, and James Fredricksen. The Common Core State Standards argue that "students’ ability to write sound arguments on substantive topics and issues…is critical to college and career readiness." This book is filled with proven lessons for writing, reading, and discussing arguments that teachers can use right now. In addition, ideas are provided for creating instructional contexts that maximize the power of those lessons through a compelling framework that will help teachers create their own lessons and units in the future. Together, they give students the substance for meeting—and exceeding—the Common Core standards. Grades 6–12. Index. Bibliography. Appendix. Heinemann. 163 pages. ©2012.commoncore
