Are you looking for a fun way for your high school students to practice evidence? Maybe you just need an easy and out-of-the-box method for reviewing the C-E-R (claim, evidence, and reasoning) framework?
This set of task cards allows students to brainstorm evidence ideas, match appropriate evidence to differing tasks, evaluate strong and weak evidence, and more.
With these 24 two-sided cards, you'll have an activity you can use year after year. Students can work through them individually, in pairs, or in groups. Partner and group work can lead to fruitful discussions and poignant questions. You can even do the task cards as a whole-class review by pulling 1-3 cards and posing the questions to your class.
I use these with my high school English students, but I've written them in order for my students to practice applying C-E-R to any persuasive or argumentative task. There are literary, scientific, real-world, and even a few imaginary examples within the task cards (see them all in the preview!).
