6th Grade:Scholars are required to develop an argumentative essay pertaining to the topic of immigration. Each scholar selected a topic from the list below and crafted claims and a counter claim (pros & cons). Next scholars were required to complete a research to gather information to support their claims.
On Friday we will develop the introduction paragraph and for HW scholars will finish their rough drafts. Upon their return on Wednesday, I will look over their drafts and provide feedback in preparation for their final drafts. Below are the list of topics as well as an attachment of a sample argumentative essay with all the parts labeled as a guide when scholars are writing.
