Station 4 asks students to accept the Canvas course invitation; then, students read an argumentative essay in NewsELA and write a constructed response analyzing the writer’s argument and techniques for developing the argument.

All station learning activity design is by me and original; station posters/templates are from Building Book Love on Teachers Pay Teachers.
