Common Core Close Reading: Why Are GMO's Not Safe
This informative, CON GMO article is an awesome reading activity just loaded with the new anchor standards for science reading. The space provided for meta-cognitive markers encourage your students to strive for depth of knowledge with dialog and comments. Included is a "T" graph organizer for citation note-taking and fueling those PRO GMO arguments or debates. The added text-based standards questions at the end ask students to find evidence and support their claims using a color coding citation method. Students will practice informational text analysis so needed for higher level thinking skills in all subjects.This really worked well at arming the students with the facts they needed for argumentative writing. Adding con video clips off U-tube will really help with this lesson.
