Students are given a chance to self-reflect on a resolution and form a personal opinion: Strongly Agree, Agree, Disagree, or Strongly Disagree. Then, as new information is read aloud, students are invited to re-examine their opinion and change their mind.
Students read, listen, and self-reflect. They learn to recognize the elements of an argument and identify claims through close reading, close listening, and inference. They use reasoning, consider evidence, and explore point of view, as they adjust their personal opinions based on new information.
