About the Argumentative Writing Project

A team of researchers with the College of Education and Human Ecology at The Ohio State University is conducting research on the teaching and learning of argumentative writing in high school English language arts (ELA) classrooms.

By studying how experienced ELA teachers teach argumentative writing, we are identifying key instructional processes related to student learning of argumentative writing in ELA classrooms.  Based on what we learn, we will build a series of instructional models for the teaching of argumentative writing.

The research reported here was supported by the Institute of Education Sciences, U.S. Department of Education, through Grant 305A100786 The Ohio State University. The opinions expressed are those of the authors and do not represent views of the Institute or the U.S. Department of Education.
