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

PARTS OF A BASIC ARGUMENT

ARGUMENT IS LIKE …

… TAKING YOUR READER ON

A ROLLER COASTER!

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”

3.

REASONING

Connecting your evidence back to your claim and explaining how it supports it.

“This example shows”

Putting on the safety straps

Securing the straps;

Checking that its secure!

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU

SKIP A STEP?

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.
