8 Strategies for Designing Lesson Plans to Meet the CCSS Opinion and Argument Writing Requirements > Eye On Education

8 Strategies for Designing Lesson Plans to Meet the CCSS Opinion and Argument Writing Requirements > Eye On Education | English Teacher | Scoop.it

For years, teachers have been designing persuasive writing lessons for their students. The Common Core State Standards are changing that by asking teachers to move away from persuasion and toward argumentation. Argumentation (called opinion writing in the elementary grades) is preferred by the CCSS because it is more rigorous and more in line with the kind of writing students will be expected to do in college and careers.

 

In this white paper, we’ll look at what argumentation really means, what the standards specifically require at each grade level, and how teachers can create lesson plans to meet these new requirements. I’ll also outline the following eight strategies for designing lesson plans to meet the new requirements:


1. Identify Fact vs. Opinion
2. Determine Credible Sources
3. Acknowledge Alternate or Opposing Claims
4. Vary Syntax
5. Assign a Combination of Short and Longer Writing Tasks
6. Use Mentor Texts
7. Involve Content-Area Teachers
8. Don’t Forget Speaking and Listening
