Reflection: Flexibility Frankenstein on Trial - Section 3: Writing an Argument of Inquiry


When introducing students to arguing for inquiry, I needed to start with a much simpler example than Frankenstein and then modelled how to do something similar before having them write an inquiry argument about Frankenstein. The end result is much more akin to a persuasive essay than an argument of inquiry.  However, I do think the students do have a concept of the inquiry argument now even if they have not successfully written one.  In fact, these papers do a better job of presenting evidence and using questioning as a way to prove an answer.
