Students Support Their Claims On Thoreau's Walden

Unit 14: A Short Writing Unit
Lesson 2 of 7

Objective: SWBAT gain better understanding of what qualifies as strong evidence by following a set of guidelines as they select evidence to support their claims.

Big Idea: Producing evidence from previously acquired knowledge is more difficult that selecting evidence from a text the teacher assigns. A lesson to help students with this task teaches them about the purpose of quality evidence.
