Abstract

Writing a clear, concise claim, finding durable evidence, and producing supportive reasoning from various texts is a foundation of writing skills in secondary school and beyond. This module was designed for 6th grade students to ensure that they can create solid claims and support them with strong evidence and reasoning in a claim, evidence, reasoning (CER) paragraph. This is the first step toward writing successful argument essays.
