Today you will be working with a partner. Using the argumentative writing/speech rubric, you and your partner will evaluate a few samples of claims and counterclaims (file is in your WH Drop folder). This will help you become more familiar with the assessment rubric, as well as see various ways to effectively write claims and counterclaims and see how the 2 are linked together to support the claim while also providing a more neutral tone in an argument as this will appeal to an audience or reader's logos.
You will provide peer feedback to your partner on their outlines, using the handout provide. Afterwards you will continue to improve your outline and get assistance from the teacher, as needed. When you are ready, begin drafting the essay.
