In The Common Core: Teaching Argumentative Writing and Speaking (Grades 6-12), educators will gain a solid understanding of why argumentative literacy comprises crucial skills students need for college and career, and be able to show their students how to analyze and use argument effectively in their reading, writing, and speaking. By examining the main elements and various structures of argument, educators will also understand the important interplay between reading, writing, and speaking and be able to show students strategies for using argument across a variety of disciplines and the world beyond school.
