Gr 6_EE_ExpressionsSimplifying_ArgumentFrame_Critique

We used this task for sixth graders later in the year after working with argumentation for several months. As students became proficient with providing evidence and warrants for their own arguments, we transitioned to explaining others’ reasoning. This task required students to provide warrants to explain the evidence provided. Students needed to understand the distributive property, commutative property, and how to simplify equations. Some struggled with explaining why each step was “warranted.”
