Introduce your high school scholars as to how to use counterclaims in argument writing. Learners explore this skill with collaborative efforts and technology. Together they explore the pros and cons of homework and develop a thesis for their point of view using the ideas developed in class. The next phase has them in the computer lab researching sources for their argument with a recommendation to have the instructor show how to include parenthetical citations, graphs and statistics into their writing. The activity can be modified for any topic including literary analysis.
