PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity focuses on allowing students to creatively engage with synthesis skills by relating said skills to their lives in high school. The document provides two prompts--modeled after Advanced Placement synthesis prompts--that require students to evaluate the motivations and credibility of different speakers in order to synthesize information as they--students completing the activity--produce their own arguments in relation to the prompts.

This is an intro to synthesis activity, but it could be fun on a half-day or something of that sort. Often times students don’t think they come into class with research skills, so I created this lesson so they could realize that they use somewhat decent research skills every day when dealing with their drama. Also, for those hard-to-reach kids who don’t seem to care about English or research skills, they will at least care about their drama, so they need these skills.

Although this assignment has been designed for AP English classrooms, it is an effective research lesson for all classrooms involving high school--and perhaps 8th grade--students. It's fun; the kids have a blast doing this every year.

The document is fully editable, so change what you see fit.
