On  June 24, 2012Tracee Orman answered:
Hi Golfandteach,
It would depend on the reading material you are using. If you pick a current event article, students can choose good/bad qutes and further elaborate what those quotes might be inferring. A pro-con argument is also another type of non-fiction text that would be appropriate for this activity. This is just a jump-start into deeper discussions (have them elaborate on their choices) or writing assignments. I like to think of it as a non-threatening way to get them to think critically about what they read. :) I hope that helps! -Tracee
