Using news articles from NewsELA.com students will be asked to write an opinion piece on the Supreme Court. With the recent death of Judge Scalia I wanted my students to be involved in the conversation and aware of what the debate is. It took some background building, but my 5th graders were able to do a great job! I broke this up over 3 days- but we could have spent some more!
