Are you teaching argument writing in your class? Do you need high-interest articles and materials for your students to buy into the writing? How about using Snapchat and Fortnite to engage your students?!?!? Save almost $4.00 with this bundle!!!

In this bundle, you are receiving:

1. Snapchat Reading Comprehension:

If students are not talking about Fortnite or Instagram, they are discussing Snapchat! My middle school students choose this app over any other one. I figured students would love to read about the pros and cons of Snapchat, and they can choose an argument based on the research and information! I thought I would turn something the kids love into a learning experience and a teachable moment! What student would not love to write about social media?!?!

I wrote a three-page article about the safety of Snapchat and teenage usage, and it observes both sides of the argument about the app-why teens love the app, as well as the concerns. This product includes both a higher and lower level article for differentiation purposes. Included with the article are reading comprehension questions for both levels, as well argument writing extension activities and worksheets.

2. Fortnite Reading Comprehension & Argument:

Has Fortnite taken over your classroom as it has mine? This is all my students talk about, and if there is a second of downtime, they are talking about their levels, successes, Snapchat photos, and everything that comes with this game! I thought I would turn this crazy fad that is taking over our classrooms into a learning experience and a teachable moment!

I wrote a three-page article (”Fortnite-Addiction or Amusement?”) on the controversy of Fortnite, and it observes both sides of the argument about the video game. Included with the article, I created 8 multiple choice questions, along with a short-answer question. There are many extensions you can add to this article!

A. Fortnite article- “Fortnite-Addiction or Amusement?”

B. Comprehension Questions & Short Answer Question

C. Answer Key

D. Graphic Organizer for the Debate

E. JUST ADDED! 4/3/18-Argument Writing Template & Worksheet

3. Argument Writing Bundle:

Part of the English Language Arts standards is for students to be “college-ready”. It is so important for students to know how to properly argue a topic they feel strongly about, and secondly, they need to know how to produce and argue a strong debate. The key to being able to do this is understanding the writing technique for the argument.

I took the time to simplify this process for my students, and I wanted to share this process with you. My students really appreciated the way I introduced writing an argument, and they have expressed that it is simple and easy. I hope you find it just as useful and engaging.
