Argument Led Essay Lesson (IELTS Writing Task 2)
Hi, hope you're all well. I've just added a free printable lesson to Teaching Truffles.
It's a 2-hour lesson about "argument led essay writing" which is particularly relevant to students preparing for the IELTS exam. As you may already know, writing task 2 of the IELTS exam may require that participants write an essay following the argument led approach. In other words, the student writes about the advantages and disadvantages of something before offering their own opinion.
Bear in mind, there are a few writing approaches that students need to be aware of for writing task 2, the argument led approach being just one of them.
The lesson is split into 2 phases: the teaching phase, which uses the worksheets (8 pages), and the practice phase, which involves writing an IELTS style argument led essay with the help of a checklist. All in all, the lesson is easy to teach, productive and engaging.
