Teaching Argumentative Writing
February 11, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Each year, The Learning Network’s Editorial Contest provides students a platform to write short, evidence-based persuasive essays like the editorials The New York Times publishes every day. Over 10,000 students participate annually.
We know that evidence-based argumentative writing is an important component of middle and high school education. This contest serves as the perfect real-world example of this genre. And students have the chance to share their opinions with our judges — and, if they’re one of dozens of winners and runners-up, with the world.
In this webinar, The Learning Network, along with expert educators and some previous teenage winners, will explains how students can use our resources to sharpen their skills at making and defending arguments and walk you through our editorial contest.
