Immigration in the United States: A Collaborative Reasoning, Critical Reading and Debate Experience

In this lesson students will read about the current political arguments in the U.S. to prepare for a Collaborative Reasoning discussion. The Big Discussion Question: Should we make it easier or harder for Mexicans to immigrate to the United States? Students will purposefully read to find reasons on both sides of the immigration issue while taking notes on a T-chart to justify their oral response to the Big Question when engaged in the CR discussion.
