Grade 7 is the final year of the Middle School. It means that though students are largely immature, they have at least retained some grains of dissection and analysis. They can make decent comparisons and understand what is right or wrong. Their mind can be well-cultivated by choosing biting and incisive argumentative essay topics. Of course, you will have to keep the topics conversant to their standard.
Seventh grade Lesson Timed Writing: The Argumentative Essay
To be ready for today's lesson, there is a little bit of teacher preparation work to be done. Yesterday, you collected a script from each pair of students. Before class today, you will need to take a moment and go through the scripts to find an exemplar of the assignment. You will need a class set of that exemplar for students to use as evidence on their writing assignment today. You will also need to make sure each student has a copy of his or her script. In this case, that means making a copy of each script as each pair of students only turned in one copy.
Argumentative essays are one of the most common types of essay writing. Students are assigned to write such essays very frequently. Despite being assigned so frequently, students still find it hard to write a good argumentative essay.
