A summer assignment that will rock your socks.
Learn all about argument, rhetorical analysis, and close reading through pop culture.
What is LearnArgument?
"Summer reading," new and improved.
LearnArgument offers a series of super-engaging online learning modules that use pop culture to foster precisely the skills that students need to be successful in any English course that values close reading, rhetorical analysis, and synthesis.
These modules are incredibly versatile, making them a powerful addition to English classes whether they meet in-person, entirely online, or some hybrid combination of the two.
Foster the requisite skills.
It's 2022. Why shouldn't students be given the opportunity to engage with high quality learning anytime, anywhere? Students can complete these modules at their own pace (1) over the summer months, (2) at the start of the school year, or (3) throughout the year.
Best of all, teachers can monitor their students' course progress with no additional grading required.
What does "engaging" really mean?
Research (and common sense) shows that the best learning occurs when people are genuinely interested in the content. This happens when people have prior knowledge to connect to what they're learning, as well as the feeling that the new learning is authentically connected to their lives. LearnArgument helps students to recognize how understanding argument will give them an edge in the real-world before providing authentic opportunities to apply those skills to the pop culture texts they already engage with every single day.
