This editable doc contains five on-line sources relating to the topic of paying students for grades. All sources are links to full-length articles.
The format follows the AP Language template for the synthesis question. You could edit the sources down to just a few; you could divide the class into groups and have one group report out on the article / research, etc. You could also use this as a resource for students who are beginning to conduct research on the impact of paying students for grades, test scores, etc.
If you are working on PARCC preparation for the PBA and EOY essays, this resource will allow you to have several resources at your fingertips.
