Transcript of The Lunchroom Murder

The Lunchroom Murder
Claim, Rules, Evidence (Review)
Think back to what you have already learned about argumentative writing.

What is a claim?

What is a rule?

What is evidence?

Why are these important when making an argument?
Your Mission
On an otherwise uneventful Thursday afternoon police heard a shot inside Ernie’s Lunchroom, rushed in, and found the scene.

They identified the body as that of a prominent racketeer named Fannin. Ernie, who is both the owner and only employee, had only one fact to tell: the murderer had leaned against the wall while firing at point-blank range. The imprint of his hand is in clear view. The cash register has just been rung up at $8.75.

This is a difficult case. Your investigative team must attempt to determine which of the people in the lunchroom killed Fannin. You will have to observe the details carefully. There is enough evi- dence to help you explain most of what happened.
