Teach Argument With Listography

In short, “listography” is a strategy that your students can utilize to organize their thoughts using a series of structured lists. The primary benefit of listography is that it enables students to spend less time structuring their thoughts, less time “bogged down” with writing, and more time analyzing.

If you’re looking to make better use of your students’ efforts, to optimize your grading practices and time management, and to place a greater emphasis on critical reading and analytical thinking, you’re going to fall in love with listography!

Lesson Description

This lesson bundle includes three listography templates that are pre-populated with list categories for unpacking arguments and conducting rhetorical analyses. Integrating these listographies into your classroom is quite literally as simple as printing, copying, and distributing to students in conjunction with your next assigned reading. (You might ask students to complete a series of listographies, as you would a series of journal entries, to be graded as a “whole” … you might ask students to complete a listography as a classwork or homework assignment … or, you might simply use listography to fuel your next class discussion!)

A blank listography is also included in this bundle. Once your students are comfortable analyzing texts and developing listographies, the blank template provides a more open-ended (and, potentially, more insightful) framework for your learners!

You can, of course, edit any of the listographies in Word doc format, or simply assign specific list categories depending on your curricular focal points!
