Reflection: Lesson Planning Collecting Support for Intelligent Argument - Section 2: Lesson & Independent Work


I absolutely love the material I give students to read here; however, I do realize it is one sided.  I do not have an equal representation of both sides of the argument.  This is not an oversight, but simply a matter of what is available.

While I did find two pieces ("In Disapproval of Failure and Should Everyone Get a Trophy") that a student could pull material to represent the -"allowing students to fail is not good" side of things, they are not as strong as those on the opposite side.  I hope to remedy this, but was not able to in time for the lesson. 

Obviously, when providing student with research materials, it is best to have equality.
