The students will collaborate with Mrs. York's 12th grade classrooms via Skype regarding ideas for topics for argumentative research. This project would best be implemented at the beginning of January for students to have choices and share current ideas for research.We will be use Skype and Google Docs.
Before Skyping another classroom, we will discuss current issues and world conditions that are suitable for argumentative topics. We will research this information and place topics in Google Docs. We will then call Mrs.York's 12th grade classroom and discuss the subjects which are most volatile and have the most information. We will discuss the different opinions on each side. We will listen to their opinions and form a list of subjects which are acceptable on the 12th grade level. From this discussion we type a response paper to one topic.
