"In the Common Core State Standards middle and high school students are being asked to write arguments where they can write a claim that is supported by evidence. Many students find this difficult. To help them, it is easier to teach them to identify a claim and its evidence before they are asked to create one. Enclosed you will find 16 task cards. Each task card contains a controversial topic and evidence from one side of a debate" from Engaging Them All (on TpT)

Current events are a great way to keep kids informed of what is going on in the world around them. This current event sheet and rubric allows students to choose an article that interests them to share with the class. They must highlight important key events, answer questions and write a summary. Students then present their current event to the class on an assigned day.
