Ask students to raise their hand if they usually win an argument. After the anticipatory set, ask students to draw a line with two arrows at either end.
Ask the students to make an X representing where they stand on a controversial statement. Students should wear uniforms to school. Those who marked in the middle, visit to both corners to hear two sides of the issue. Eventually, the people in the middle must make a stand and record supporting points for their position.
Students meet in their corners, read from their lists of supporting points, and strengthen their arguments.
When students finish writing their lists, they return to their seats and the teacher explains that a strong persuasive piece of writing will address opposing arguments.
At this time, students will face off to refute each other. A student offers a point in support of his position, while the opposing student in line refutes the point and then offers a supporting reason for his side.
This goes back and forth for awhile and new volunteers can come up and offer points for their side. Next, students write their paragraph or essay with a main idea, supporting points, arguments refuting their opponent and a conclusion that restates their main idea and explains the bottom line or why the issue is important.
Students are graded on a rubric. The top 4 score indicates that students have included a main idea, supporting points, an argument that refutes their opponent and a conclusion.Through a classroom game and resource handouts, students learn about the techniques used in persuasive oral arguments and apply them to independent persuasive writing activities.
