Should We Drill?

To drill or not to drill? Introduce the controversial debate between economic and environmental priority through this news article worksheet. Brief background information gives students context to access the evidence for both sides, which are presented visually in a "yes" and "no" box. After reading both sides, debaters are encouraged to pick a side and find evidence to support it. Consider creating a graphic organizer to guide students' findings, and then holding a debate!
