In the wake of the increasing tension and violence between the African American community and law enforcement, this activity was one of many that were implemented in a counter-cultural revolution unit comparing the 1960's to Black Lives Matter of today.
This is to help students learn how to research beyond social media and analyze a situation despite their own biases. In addition, it is a lesson surrounding a "circle of viewpoints." I recommend scaffolding the research. For example, do the first article together as a class. You can model at the front of the room on a projector, Smart Board, White Board, etc some effective reading strategies, such as reading as a group, highlighting you find the answers for the graphic organizer and then annotate a note in the margins for easy reference. I suggest havign students summarize each answer in their own words, talk about it and answer any questions they may have before moving onto the next part of the article. If time permits, have an open discussion at the end and ask students to identify Author's Purpose and the perspective provided in each article.
Each article is it's own daily lesson. The second one you could have them research in partners or small groups and the third can be done independently. Once they complete the research activity, use this as a platform for a whole group discussion and allow students to freely express themselves. Encourage students to support their opinions with evidence from their research.
