Critical Editorial Analysis: Is Overpopulation a Problem?

Unit 4: Populations
Lesson 8 of 10

Objective: Students will be able to critically consider the claims and evidence provided in an editorial and write a paragraph explaining why they agree or disagree with the central argument of the editorial.

Big Idea: Editorials are only as effective as the evidence provided to support their claims. Sometimes editorials that seem to be on opposite sides of an issue are actually in fundamental agreement.
