Has Fortnite taken over your classroom as it has mine?

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!

4. Snapchat Pro/Con Debate Article & Worksheets:

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.

6. Argument Writing Toolkit:

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 expressed that it is simple and easy. I hope you find it just as useful and engaging.

Included in the product:

1. three brainstorming worksheets

2. a poster defining argument writing for your classroom

3. an argument writing printable for quick reference

4. a sample argument essay for student reference

5. a Mad Lib’s style writing template for successful argument writing

6. full activity for student practice with articles and a brainstorming worksheet
