Use this blackline master with a research-based strategy called debate carousel. Debate carousel is where students must support or refute opinions using text-based evidence. Using this strategy is also considered a total participation technique.
To use the blackline master, give the students a prompt to analyze. Have the students read material that could be used to support or refute the prompt. Then, have the students follow the directions along the edge of the penny as they, first, support or refute the prompt, and then pass it along to other students to respond. All responses must be supported by citing evidence in the text.
