Today I am learning … to use evidence from the text to support my opinions in discussions with my class about the Syrian refugee crisis.
I know I understand when… I am able to use large ideas, themes, and citations from the Text Set to engage with my peers.
Come to discussions prepared, having read or researched material under study; explicitly draw on that preparation by referring to evidence on the topic, text, or issue to probe and reflect on ideas under discussion.
Pose questions that elicit elaboration and respond to others' questions and comments with relevant observations and ideas that bring the discussion back on topic as needed.
Acknowledge new information expressed by others and, when warranted, modify their own views.
Include multimedia components and visual displays in presentations to clarify claims and findings and emphasize salient points.
