Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Learning Targets:
– Students will analyze the argument in a model essay.
– Students will write arguments to support claims with clear reasons and relevant evidence.
– Students will produce clear and coherent writing that is appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
– Students will explain what it means to write a coherent argument essay with appropriate structure and relevant evidence.

Students will develop strong sentences:
In English, we have four main sentence structures: the simple sentence, the compound sentence, the complex sentence, and the compound-complex sentence. Each uses a specific combination of independent and dependent clauses to help make sure that sentences are strong, informational, and most importantly, that they make sense.
