CLAIMS ABOUT YOURSELF
➤
We make claims everyday—about ourselves,
about other people, about the world around us,
etc.
➤
Take a moment and make three claims about
yourself, relating to who you are and your
identity.
➤
➤
For example, your claims could start like this:
➤
I am a very…
➤
I am the best…
➤
I have the best…
➤
I am the worst…
Miss Robinson’s Claim
➤
“I am a very bad soccer player.”
PARTS OF A BASIC ARGUMENT
MAKING A COHERENT
ARGUMENT IS LIKE…
…TAKING YOUR READER ON
A ROLLER COASTER!
1. CLAIM
Stating that your thoughts on
something are true.
Sitting them in the
rollercoaster
2. EVIDENCE
Giving a fact or example to
support your claim.
“For example”
Putting on the safety straps
3. REASONING
Connecting your evidence back to
your claim and explaining how it
supports it.
“This example shows”
Securing the straps;
Checking that its secure!
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU
SKIP A STEP?
EVALUATING
EXAMPLES
Watch the following videos and take notes on the claims
being made and the evidence/reasoning used to support
them. At the end of each video, state whether or not you
accept the claim being made and why.

GUIDED PRACTICE
➤
Let’s choose a topic together
and make a claim.
➤
As a class, we will work
together to provide evidence
and explain our reasoning in
order to support our claim.
➤
Let’s try it!!
➤
Schools should allows
students to use their cell
phone during class.
➤
School should start later in
the morning and end later in
the afternoon.
INDEPENDENT PRACTICE
➤
TODAY YOU WILL BE WORKING WITH ONE
PARTNER!!
➤
FIRST FIVE MINUTES:
➤
➤
Silently revise your identity claims to make
sure that they can be supported thoroughly
with evidence.
TEN MINUTES:
➤
Take turns convincing your partner of your
claims.
➤
As your partner presents and proves their
claim, follow each step of the roller coaster
that corresponds to the C-E-R format.
➤
If they skip a step, you may “fall” off the
roller coaster—but you must tell them WHY!
➤
We will continue this until all of your
individual claims have been proven.
