Reflection: Unit Planning Myth Madness: Apollo vs Hephaestus - Section 2: Draft an Argument


My school uses manuals and guides from Empowering Writers to align the teaching of narrative, expository and argument writing through the grades. The detail generating questions and other aspects of the Myth Madness unit are adopted from this resource. The company recently updated its manual on persuasive writing to one on argument writing in order to better align with the CCSS. Check it and their other materials out. I think you will find them useful.
