Argumentation—the reasoned presentation of explanations, interpretations, generalizations, conclusions, or even theories—is a key facet of complex informational texts across disciplines. Argumentation is emphasized extensively throughout the Common Core State Standards. Arguments are used for many purposes—to influence point of view, to bring about some action, or to establish convincing support for an explanation or evaluation of a concept, issue, or problem. This On Demand Web seminar examines the nature of argumentation across academic disciplines (especially social studies) and suggests questioning practices that scaffold analyzing argumentation in complex informational texts.
