The average lesson addresses one to two main concepts. Many lessons include direct instruction at the beginning, practice with groups or partners, and individual work.

My students really enjoyed this unit. In fact, many of my reluctant learners got really involved in their papers. (I was thrilled.) Students also have an opportunity to evaluate other students' arguments, which worked as both motivation and fun.

The unit assumes that students have already learned the basics of research and does NOT teach research. This unit is designed to take eight 90 minute class periods, but will take longer if you chose to incorporate research into this unit plan.

Requirements for the unit include:
-Computer Access (at least 3 days)
-YouTube access (optional)
-Classroom materials (see the list on the product preview)

Enjoy,
Jessica Low
