Building Blocks of an Argument | On the Web with Roz Linder

Building Blocks of an Argument | On the Web with Roz Linder | Common Core | Scoop.it

When evaluating the strength of an argument, students are often told to examine the supporting details. The challenge with this directive is that many students are unclear what supporting details really look like. This chart serves as a visual to help students see six specific ways that an author might use to support an argument. This helps students to hone in and look for specific elements within text.

Great visual! I would add one more building block: logic....which may be the mortar for all the bricks.

Just watched this Teaching Channel video on close reading of informational text. Though the text is 5th grade, the techniques used can be applied across all grades. Take a peek!

This video would be great for professional development. It's short enough to share during an hour long PD session, leaving time to discuss and create ideas for implementing in the classroom.  

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, January 9, 2014 9:55 AM

So many good videos on this website. This lesson reminded me of one I typcially taught as my students moved into analytic literary research. Like Wessling, I would work with students to generate a list of all the aspects within a piece of literature that one could analyze throughout the text. And the, I would ask them to choose two or three and explore not only how they found the aspects interacting, but what literary critics before them said about the text's development in those areas.

A great way of thinking - looking for concrete and conceptual patterns, and then draw conclusions..

This is an awesome collection of reading strategies. The document begins by describing different types of struggling readers and identifies a grouping of strategies later in the booklet.
