Is That a Fact?

Investigate popular scientific claims and gather evidence to defend or argue against an author's stance. Writers synthesize information and compose their own "Really?" columns modeled after those found in the weekly "Science Times" section of the New York Times. The lesson plan reinforces the development of clear arguments as well as the use of appropriate evidence and details to support claims.
