Find the Claim Before You Write One!

Wednesday, July 16, 2014
I totally forgot to tell you about this great item I made because I started making it over April Vacation stopped and didn't finish till the first days of summer.  Labor of Love!!!
I have found that many of my kiddos struggle with writing a claim because they just can't recognize one themselves.  I created these task cards to help them.  On each task card, students are given two to three pieces of evidence supporting one side of a contemporary debate.  Using the evidence, students have to choose the best possible claim from three possibilities.  This is great as a quick review, a launch to claims, or remediation for your struggling writers.  Head on over and check it out!!!
