Argument is everywhere! Whether speaking and writing on-demand in school and on the job, or composing a text for publication in magazines or blogs, the ability to construct evidence based, nuanced claims and acknowledge the strengths and limits of multiple perspectives is crucial. The National Writing Project's College, Career and Community Writing Project Program (C3WP) provides an entry point into the teaching strategies that can support the growth of argumentative thinking, discourse, and writing. In these four half-day sessions, we will explore NWP's College, Career and Community Writing Project Program, practice argument, and develop an approach to teaching argument in our classrooms.
