The author notes the focus on critical thinking, analytical, and creativity skills within the standards and provides guidance to language arts and mathematics teachers on how to approach instruction on argumentation concepts such as claims, grounds, backing, and qualifiers. He also describes how to adapt such methods in order to teach younger students through the use of writing prompts.
