Product Description
As I try to move my classwork away from basic comprehension and understanding of a text, I like to assign topics that ask students to look at topics through a broader lens.

When they look at topics through a broader lens, they begin to analyze, evaluate, and synthesize information. This journal or essay aims to do just that.

Prior to reading the chapter "Death of an Innocent," I assign this writing assignment on "truth."

First, students are asked to contemplate the meanings and connotations of the word "truth."

Second, students read three quotations on "truth" from famous figures and ponder the meanings of those quotations.

Third, students consider the essay's topic which is to define the term "truth" as they see it, and then to apply that definition to their understandings of the world.

An internet link to an example essay is included at the bottom of the handout.

I am attaching a student example to use as a guide as well.
