Snapchat Reading Comprehension and Argument Writing

If students are not talking about Fortnite or Instagram, they are discussing Snapchat! My middle school students choose this app over any other one.


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 as argument writing extension activities and worksheets.
