Hello blogosphere! I have nothing especially spectacular to post but I do have a new item. I have been having some CCSS conversations and people have been telling me that they are having some difficulty having their little ones write counterclaims. I started to wrap this around in my noggin and realized that sometimes we have them "create" a counterclaim before they can "identify" one. Reverse Bloom's Taxonomy!!!!! In response I created this fun Counterclaim Task Card set where students get tons of practice identifying counterclaims and then they can use these as models. Win win!!!
