Do you have students that need to work on their argumentative writing, but you need a topic that will provide motivation to get those fingers typing or pencils moving?  If so, this four-passage, 5-page text set has the perfect prompt for you: the relationship between homework and student learning!  There are two sides to the issue, and students are required to cite relevant text information to support their argument - just like CCSS RI 1 requires! Modeled after AIR Testing, which is used in numerous states across the country, it would also fit well into a PARCC simulation.
