We use an adaptation of this lesson with library science students. They write a persuasive statement defending their opinion on downloading music on the library blog. This is an eye opening research project for them. We hope to include the lesson in a curriculum guide we are writing this winter. Please respond with permission for us to refer to you lesson in our guide. We especially like the interactive features with the established list of web sites, graphic organizers for information gathering and persuasive map to plan their response. Thank you for responding to our request.
