Educating Opinions

Logo for Educating Opinions
I ask students to explore an online newsource, which is not corporate funded, and find two articles or video editorials. One should express a view with which they agree and the other a view with which they disagree.  They must summarize both views before ripping apart the view with which they agree. I provide the students with pro/con grids.
