Argument Literacy
This is a phase 2 English Language Arts (ELA) professional development opportunity that supports the content and instructional shifts that will impact classroom practice to ensure students are college and career ready.

There is no doubt that argument writing plays an important role in Arizona's Common Core Standards. But, what, exactly, does that mean? This one-day workshop is designed to build educator confidence about teaching and implementing argument writing in the ELA or content-area classroom. The workshop will introduce the following elements of Argument Literacy:
  • The Basics of Rhetoric
  • Argument Writing and ACCS: Tracing an Argument
  • Rhetorical Modes/Purposes
  • Effective use of evidence/Writing from Sources
  • Using Argument in the ELA/Content classroom
