Using T-Charts for Evidence Based Arguments

Even young students can learn to weigh ideas and evaluate evidence! Watch as these learners start to formulate their own ideas about claims that are being made. The teacher starts with having students use their own personal experience to support their opinions, but this quickly turns into a lesson on how other sources of information can and should be used. The teacher uses two simple tools to make this learning visual for students, good old-fashioned sticky notes AND a T-chart. Check it out!
