      I taught this for my dgreee students. Well it couldn’t be done in a day. Day 1 started off teaching to write debatable and non-debatable statements. Lesson was better understood after some practice. Day 2 taught them to write thesis statement and counter argument + refutation. Day 3 told them to select a theme and write a debatable statement, thesis statement and counter argument + refutation. I must say I’m quite surprised to see their progress. For those whom missed the Day 2 class seems a bit off. However, teacher guidance is necessary. All practice done in pairs. Same pair for every lesson. Next lesson they will be writing a complete argumentative essay.~Its not the most effective method i must say. You always can tailor it to your students’ level. Good Luck
