Making Evidence-Based Claims: California Commonwealth Club Address - Cesar Chavez

The most effective way to support an argument is with clear and relevant evidence. As seventh graders read and listen to Cesar Chavez's California Commonwealth Club Address, they work through five sections of a textual analysis unit, which prompt them to understand, make, organize, write, and develop their own evidence-based claims based on the reading.
