As a member of the Culturally Relevant Teaching Hub Academy, I experienced concern about the formulaic nature of this resource and the lack of modeling. First, while "claim, evidence" traditional (read power culture) means of writing an argument, it does not consider the complexity of argument making across cultures and marginalizes those who have counter ways of arguing. Because there is no model for how one might make a claim of give evidence, students from cultures who have been marginalized may be left with nothing to say. Argument is an important, powerful tool for our students to possess. An exploration of the myriad of ways to make an argument is required followed by a discussion of how power comes into play with this traditional model.
