Practice the skills of scientific writing by making a claim and supporting it with qualitative and quantitative evidence. Then justify why the evidence makes sense with solid reasoning. Don't forget to play devil's advocate, craft your rebuttal so no other claims, evidence, or reasoning will make sense. This can be used for ANY topic, any grade level. Find a short reading passage, set of data, or current event, then set your students free as they write with purpose.
