Product Description

Students should be able to delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims. Students will be able to analyze conflicting information on the same topic. Students will be able to analyze how phrases and words are used in a text and determine why the author picked those words.

The purpose of this activity is not to determine whether Donald Trump is a good president or a bad president. The students are evaluating the information they are reading and seeing and determining if the source is reliable. In the 21st century, to be a good citizen, students have to be able to take the information they are seeing on social media and the internet and research for themselves whether it is true or not. This is a great activity to show students that what they hear and read isn't always as it seems.
