Product Description

Students frequently struggle with how to use evidence as support in their writing. They have no trouble finding evidence in a text but don’t quite understand how to discuss or explain that evidence in relation to a claim. If this sounds like a problem your students have, I hope this simulated courtroom demonstration lesson helps you teach students that the burden of proof is on the writer, not on the evidence. No matter the claim, it is up to the writer to frame and explain evidence gathered from the text.
