This was a great presentation! I loved your argumentative format as well as the resource of KQED. I will definitely use this site to connect my literature to informational texts and writing. Thank you!

Thanks. I will definitely investigate KQED Do Now for possible argument writing topics. I think it is important to find topics that tie to reading and relate to students' interests.
