Limited Capacity seats available

Although in some ways all language has an argumentative edge that aims to make a point, not all language use aims to win out over others. Essentially, argument is about sharing information. The modified, six-part oration introduces argument that is specific in reference, cogent in definition, and free of plot summary that is not relevant to the prompt. In this practice, students learn to communicate with clarity, focus, and consideration of audience. Attendees, will receive an overview of the modified argument, handouts for clarification, and review evidence that shows student writers' progressions: authentic assessment.
