Developed by two members of The WRITE Center's Advisory Board, Chauncey Monte-Sano and Mary Schleppgrell, Read.Inquire.Write helps teachers improve student reading, reasoning, and writing with sources through social studies inquiry. Their free and downloadable curriculum creates a process to support secondary students' argument writing through the reading of sources and analysis of complex social and historical problems.
Here are materials that support students in 3 types of argument writing that are increasingly complex! There are five investigations for each type of argument writing (15 in total).
Six disciplinary literacy tools create a structured process for inquiry and writing across all the investigations and types of argument writing. To access these tools and free resources available through Read.Inquire.Write, simply register with the site.
