Making Evidence-Based Claims ELA/Literacy Units empower students with a critical reading and writing skill at the heart of the Common Core: making evidence-based claims about complex texts. These units are part of the Developing Core Proficiencies Curriculum.
This unit develops students’ abilities to make evidence-based claims through activities based on a close reading of President Ronald Reagan’s First Inaugural Address and Secretary Hillary Clinton’s 2011 APEC Address.
The unit components are divided into separate PDF files for ease of use. The files may be downloaded individually or in a single zip file.
