Due to the overwhelming popularity of these articles I decided to include all three of the articles and activities you need to create a GMO argument unit. This is my forth year doing this unit in class with my 7th graders and each year it turns out even better. At the end of the unit I have students do an argumentative essay and Socratic Seminar The outcome pleasantly surprises me and really excites students to write with an informed position. There has been so much press on this topic lately, so, it's a natural bet they have herd about the debate and want to know more.
