Instructional Ideas

  • Provide a model argument to readers and have them identify each part of the argument according to the handout
  • Pair the handout with a reading strategy designed to have pupils identify the main idea and supporting points
Classroom Considerations

  • Resource does not address how each part of an argument interacts with one another; it only looks at parts in isolation

  • Material within resource provides real-life examples
