Argumentative Writing: Are Social Networking Sites Good For Our Society?
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This lesson is designed to support English language learners when argumentative writing.  It is prepared using the topic selected by my students, “Are Social Networking Sites Good For Our Society?”  This lesson could easily be adapted to meet other topics of interest.  The lesson begins by reinforcing that when one is argumentative writing, the writer must choose a side and have a reason for choosing it. Then, the lesson evaluates others’ argumentative writing to see what it might look like. Afterward, the students have an opportunity to get comfortable with the argumentative writing topic they will be writing about with support of their peers and the teacher. Ultimately, with other support in place, students will write an argumentative piece to the best of their ability with a goal in mind.

This two-day lesson focuses on the reading and analysis of “The Circuit” by Francisco Jiménez. The goal of this lesson is for students to make inferences about the challenges and changes required of the story’s character, Panchito, and to find evidence of the author’s craft that develops the narrative.Students will reflect upon the relevance of the essential question (In what ways does our need to feel a sense of belonging conflict with our individuality?) to the narrator's experience.  In particular, students should recognize that the reality of the narrator's individual situation acts as an impediment to his efforts to belong to a community.Although "The Circuit" is classified as a work of fiction, the author states that the stories represent the lives of his family members.  Students will appreciate Jimenez's descriptive, character-driven writing.

Writing is a time-honored tradition.  It can be so much more than a few paragraphs about what you did this summer.  What are some of your favorite stories? Movies? Songs? Websites? All of these were written by someone. But, few were written in one fell swoop. Brainstorming is a widely used practice for generating ideas.  In this lesson we will be letting our imaginations run wild.  One of the most important aspects of writing is knowing what you are going to write about.

0.0 stars

In this problem-based learning module, students will use their knowledge of the ancient Roman Empire and will work to analyze critical theories historians agree contributed to the fall of Rome. Students will then work to compare the problems faced by the Romans with problems citizens of the United States still largely face today. Through this investigation, students should recognize how modern technology, government agencies, laws and resources help to solve societal problems that could have once destroyed an empire. With this new understanding, students should work to present a solution to a major problem that plagued the Roman Empire during the years leading up to its collapse.Remix Resource uses key South Carolina standards for 6th Grade Social Studies and Language ArtsOriginal Resource uses key Ohio standards for 7th Grade Social Studies and Language ArtsAuthor: Blended Learning Teacher Practice Network Date Added: 07/23/2018License: Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0  Language: English Media Format: Audio, Downloadable docs, Graphics/Photos, Text/HTML
