With this product students will understand the science behind humans causing climate change by reading an article and filling in a Claim Evidence Reasoning Chart/Graphic Organizer. Students will use evidence in the article that Human-caused climate change has made a substantial contribution to sea level rise, droughts, heat waves, tidal flooding and increases in global average temperatures that support the claim of the author.
This is great for a current event, sub plan, homework, critical thinking, scaffolding and/or reinforcement of weather concepts!
Claim Evidence Reasoning or C.E.R. charts are great for getting your students to explain phenomena in a meaningful way and it allows you as the instructor to adequately assess their understanding of concepts. The students figure out what the "Claim" is in the article, they then use data that supports the claim in the "Evidence" section, draw visual evidence and then explain why the evidence supports the claim in the "Reasoning " section.
You get a CER graphic organizer, the key, the article, tips for CER and the link to the website which is at the beginning of the article.
