SSR time…get back into the groove

College Prep


Critical thinking

  • You get SSR AND critical thinking in one day?! Lucky…..

  • For your critical thinking, you have a couple choices…..

  • 20 min

Choose one

  • Integrated Curriculum vs Traditional school

    • Should schools teach classes by subject matter OR should we teach projects that include all subjects

  • Cell phone use in school

    • Should students be allowed to use cell phones or should we ban them

  • Random locker searches

    • Should schools conduct random locker searches regularly

Now lets debate a bit

  • I want to see who chose what and what side they were on…

  • You now have another choice, would you like to debate me or another student

    • I reserve the right to debate whenever I feel the need…ha ha

  • As you listen to the debate, evaluate the effectiveness of the arguments

    • Look for:

      • Claim, evidence, warrant

      • Counterargument

Ill judge you for judging

  • First topic:

    • What arguments were raised?

      • Thesis for both sides

    • Evidence to support the thesis?

      • Was the evidence pertinent? (relevant…vocab #2)

    • Did each speaker anticipate and address a counterargument?

      • If not….how could we have addressed these issues?

  • Second topic:

    • See above

  • Third topic:

    • Ditto for sho dough

Generating Criteria

  • YAY!!!!! We get to do some of my favorite stuff all over again

  • Lets generate criteria about what makes a good argument

    • Hope we remember how to do this

    • (You are going to be so rad at this by the end of the semester)

  • NOTE: This criteria list will become my evaluation tool by which your eventual papers will be graded (along with MOVIES). So you better make sure your voice is heard

    • But this should be an evolving document, so its not set in stone today

Our Criteria for effective arguments

  • Here we go yall

  • Help a brother type this up Brie

Our Unit

  • As I told you a few weeks back, we are now going to work on research papers

  • But these research papers are not like the ones you’ve done before (well…they are but the will be framed differently)

  • We are going to write argument research papers

  • EVENTUALLY, you will chose a controversial aspect of the topic you chose, research that issue, and construct an argument for or against a position

This is important because…

  • 1) Everything is an argument!!!!!!!!!!!! But you know this

  • 2) You will do this type of research paper in your first year of college (at most universities).

  • 3) And, maybe most importantly, the skills needed to be successful in this endeavor will help you get what you want for the rest of your life

    • And we always want to get what we want (tautology….here’s your vocab word of the day)

How we’re going to break this down

  • You should remember some of this because we have gone over it before

  • Throughout the unit you will:

    • Take a position on an issue

    • Develop a series of claims in support of the position

    • Supportclaimswith specific data or evidence

    • Include warrants to clarify the connection between the data and the claim

    • Anticipate counterarguments or counterevidence

    • Respond to or rebut counterarguments or counterevidence

    • RAFT the heck out of writing

    • Our old friends, ethos, pathos, and logos will make an appearance

    • Mind Trap…if you are lucky


  • Lookie here

  • This is college level stuff here ladies and gents

Wanna see what this looks like in real life?

  • This is an actual conversation between teachers…debating the first topic
