TripleQ Argument Writing
These writing units teach argument through pro/con article reading; discussing models; targeted QuickWrites; mapping claims and evidence; and drafting, revising, and assessing essays. Student materials and teacher guides including suggested timing and scripts can be downloaded as PDFs.
TripleQ units were developed by Pennsylvania State University and the University of Pittsburg and are hosted on the Strategic Education Research Partnership (SERP) website. Although designed for middle school use, the research-based approach to argument writing is likely to benefit adult learners.
