Need a good resource that shows writers how to craft a claim and counter claim in an argumentative essay? A seven-part video series uses the first chapter of W.E.B. Du Bois’ The Souls of Black Folk as an anchor text to model the entire argumentative essay writing process. The narrator of this, the second segment, focuses on how to develop claims by creating a brainstorming chart. Her illustrated think-aloud lets viewers see her thinking as she begins to design her argument. The series could be used with the whole class to model the process or as remediation for those who need extra help.
