Manage your Assignments here.
You can also find Assignments under your account dropdown in the upper right hand corner.
This new site feature allows users to choose from our hundreds of engaging learning
games and exercises to create assignments for students. See below for details and simple
instructions on how to use this exciting new feature.
How to Assign Games or Exercises
You've selected a game or exercise to assign.
From here, you have two options: Add the game or exercise to a new assignment, or add to an existing assignment.
If you're creating a new assignment, give it a name. Adding a description or due date is optional. Click "Next".
Select the child(ren) you want to send this assignment to, then click "Done". You will see a confirmation message once it has been successfully assigned.
How Children Can Access Their Assignments
Your students can log in through your Pro membership log-in, or at learn.education.com by entering the Classroom Mode code.
Once your child selects their profile, they will land on our main menu where they will see available assignments and due dates (if applicable).
To complete the assignments, students click on the games or exercises listed on the assignment page, play, learn, and have fun!
The main menu also allows students to see their progress in each individual game and exercise in the assignment.
Track Assignment Progress
As your child completes each assignment, you'll be able to track their performance
in the Assignments tab of our Progress Tracker. You'll also be able to make edits
to assignments from here, like removing games or exercises, or changing the due date.
Students will be able to identify the three main parts of a written argument.
Students will be able to outline an argument essay by stating a claim, listing reasons, and providing evidence.
Ask students to think about the following statement and be prepared to state whether they agree or disagree, and list one reason: Dogs are better pets than cats.
Call on students to respond to the statement and to list their reasons. When they give a reason (for example, “Dogs are more fun”), press them to provide evidence (such as, “Dogs can be trained" or "Dogs can fetch”).
Do this several times, making up new statements that you think will inspire your students. (“Beyonce is the best performer,” or “Football is the best sport”).
Explain that this is how you need to think when you construct an argument essay. You need to make a claim, give reasons, and then provide at least two pieces of evidence for each reasons.
Go through one example as a class. Project the Argument Writing Template worksheet for the class to see, and construct the outline together using ideas from students.
Guided Practice/Interactive Modeling
Have students work in partners or small groups to identify a claim, three reasons, and two pieces of evidence for their claim. This can be done on scratch paper or using the argument writing template.
Have each group share what they have written with the class. Discuss and clarify as necessary.
Independent Working Time
Provide a new template for each student. Explain that they are going to select a topic of their own and map out their argument using the template. This can be done as a stand-alone exercise, or you could use this as the start to a full argument essay project.
Support: Provide struggling students with a claim and one reason with evidence pre-filled so they have an example to follow.
Enrichment: Ask students to write an argument essay about a piece of literature they are reading. Have them use evidence from the text to support their reasons. Require them to use at least two direct quotes as evidence, with citations.
Circulate the room while students are working to evaluate students’ templates to determine if they are able to complete the claim, reasons, and evidence correctly.
Review and Closing
Have students share out their work in small groups or pairs. Ask a few students to nominate a peer’s work to be shared with the entire class.
