Analyzing Persuasive and Argumentative Texts
Are you easily persuaded?
1) What is the claim being made?
2) What reasons are given to support the claim?
3) What's the evidence to support those reasons?
Invitation: Try asking these questions while you are watching commercials on tv or reading a magazine. Let your child guide you through this process and have some great conversation. You don't have to agree :-)
Reflections: How are you beginning to think about text differently because of the 3 questions we asked ourselves while reading?
Jordan "Sometimes the text can be a scam. So we have to break it down and think really hard."
Ha'Vaughnya "People can say things and they may not be true, so you have to dig deeper in the text."
Tamia "I'm going to think more when I'm reading because all of it's not true."
Zaria "When you look at something you think it's so good, and then you get it, and it's not what you expected it to be. So you've got to stop and think what it's actually about and ask if it's any good for you."
Trinity "It's not about what it looks like. You have to try to pay attention to the details and ask questions."
Jaire "I use to be easily manipulated by the big and bold print, but now I know I need to look for details and reasons."
