The Literacy Cookbook COVEREvery once in a while, a resource emerges that is so helpful it leaves me speechless.  If you are looking for prompts for argumentative writing, this resource will help.  If you are looking for articles related to such prompts, it will also help.  If you are looking for examples of argumentative writing, yes, again, it will help!

Here’s the link to “200 Prompts for Argumentative Writing,” by Michael Gonchar, Feb. 4, 2014, in the NY Times.

Many thanks to the folks at the NY Times Learning Network for this resource and many others!!!
