Developing Evidence-Based Arguments from Texts

Educators in many disciplines may be interested in Developing Evidence-Based Arguments from Texts, a strategy guide from ReadWriteThink. Constructing a logical and well-supported argument is one of the fundamental skills needed to write a successful paper and it is something that many students struggle with when learning how to write. This strategy guide is intended for use with students in grades 6-12, but instructors and teaching assistants at the undergraduate level may also find helpful teaching tips here. It includes multiple suggestions for explaining the difference between argument and persuasion, as well as downloadable handouts, links to sample essays for illustration, and links to related ReadWriteThink resources. This strategy guide was published by the National Council of Teachers of English and authored by Scott Filkins, a high school English and math teacher in Champaign, Illinois.
