This lesson, one of a series from ReadWriteThink, introduces students to the comprehension strategy of evaluating. Students learn how to evaluate information using the meeting of the minds technique, a strategy that teaches them to act out the opposing views of two or more characters in an oral debate or interview format. A link to an interactive Venn diagram is also found on this page. Several pieces of literature appropriate for use with this lesson are suggested.
