Argument Writing: Removing Irrelevant Evidence

Argument Writing: Removing Irrelevant Evidence

When writing an argument, including relevant evidence is essential to strengthening a claim, but including irrelevant information can weaken an argument and distract from the main point. In this sixth-grade reading and writing worksheet, Argument Writing: Removing Irrelevant Evidence, students will read several argument paragraphs and cross out irrelevant sentences that do not support the primary claim. This activity is a great way to give students practice analyzing and evaluating the structure of an argument and help them to improve their overall argument writing skills by studying examples and nonexamples.
