Assessing the evidence

They develop an understanding of the importance of assessing the appropriateness of evidence, as well as using sufficient evidence to support their conclusions. This tutorial includes instructional suggestions for teachers (introducing the strategy, practicing the strategy, reinforcing the strategy, applying the strategy in everyday teaching, and assessing use of the strategy) and resources for students (introductory activities, data chart, student guide, samples, and self-assessment rubric).
