Summit Academy, Draper Utah



These lesson plans are only intended to be used in the case of an extreme emergency. In all other cases, my lesson plans should be on my desk in my class room.
I have this document posted on my personal teacher page of the summit academy website.
Instructions for Lesson

Beginning of Class:

  1. Take attendance. There is a seating chart under each class list on the flowered clip board on the front table.

The Lesson:

  1. Students are to read the “Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels” opposing viewpoints articles plus the definitions on the first page. Students should examine the well-supported summaries that argue the same issue from different perspectives.

  2. Students will be writing a statement supporting one side of the argument, so have them take notes on the article, but make sure they don’t write on the actual article. Students should take note of facts, opinions, and perspectives relating to the issue in their notebooks. They will use their notes to write their paper.
