200 Prompts for Argumentative Writing

200 Prompts for Argumentative Writing | Common Core ELA | Literacy & Math | Scoop.it
For a coming student contest in which teenagers are invited to write on an issue they care about, we have gathered a list of 200 writing prompts on a wide range of issues.

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's insight:

The New York Times provides a good starting place for building an evidence based claim as students meet writing standard number 1: write arguments. But in writing arguments, the Common Core Standards ask students for "sufficient evidence" to support their claim. This in turn causes students to research which supports three writing standards: 7, 8, and 9. This set of standards comprise the writing substrand Research to Build and Present Knowledge. This is a good starting place for both ideas and motivation as well as resources.

Common Core: Teaching Argument & Informational Paragraph Writing

Common Core: Teaching Argument & Informational Paragraph Writing | Common Core ELA | Literacy & Math | Scoop.it

Each school year I begin with “writing boot camp” where we focus on the fundamentals of writing. I have transitioned to the Common Core Standards and developed flipped writing videos and complementary writing templates to help students learn how to write strong argument and informative paragraphs. I wanted to share these with teachers who might be able to use them and save time!
