In my 11th grade ELA class, students engage in a research unit on
contemporary civil rights issues. The three lessons described here
are crucial steps in this overall research unit. They teach
students some of the vital skills they need in order to
successfully research, analyze, and form conclusions about complex
issues. Specifically, these three lessons focus on: 1- Analysis of
evidence from a single source 2- Evaluating the credibility and
relevancy of sources found online 3- Synthesizing and analyzing
corroborating and contradictory evidence from multiple sources on
the same subject
