Nothing But the Truth

Young scholars role play conversations from three sets of people, each describing a conflict from a different perspective. They brainstorm and discuss definitions of opinions, facts, truth and subjectivity and relate the conversations to things they hear on TV or the radio. They look for evidence in each conversation to evaluate what really happened.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
