Reading 2 texts & writing an argument essay

This newsletter is introducing you to a new lesson based on developing transferable skills for university. The lesson focuses on students’ ability to read two academic texts and highlight key points connected to arguments for & against. Then to write a 400-600 word argument essay around those key arguments using paraphrasing and referencing skills (click here).

The lesson comprises of teacher's notes, two academic / neutral texts (written by AEUK), one argument for/against plan, two outline structures (block / point-to-point), and a model answer (550 words). It also includes (not shown in example) a highlighted version of the model essay showing how the thesis statement links all the way through the essay, the in-text referencing and counter-argument linking.

Really good lesson. Tried and tested on low and high level students - works well!
Hope you like it!
All the best,
