Today I will be using Larry Ferlazzo lesson about Syria and stretch it to gain the knowledge about evidence, proof and different ways of knowing. We will first learn what is knowledge and belief, and read the Reuben Abel’s nine types of evidence article, then we will talk about Syrian events (I already posted some resources for my students on the facebook group) and discuss president’s Obama speach in this context.
The lesson went so well and students were very interested in the materials. We have decided to do a follow up discussion nest week!
