Help students differentiate between three categories of facts to build literacy skills. This activity can be used with teacher selected articles on a single topic, or with student selected topics to enhance engagement. In addition to helping students distinguish between types of facts, students may also analyze quality of sources as they search for articles to use for this task. This activity can be used as a regular current events study, springboard to a class discussion, or as a warm up to preparing students to write their own position papers. See Position Paper Writing Process Packet
to step it up a level.
