KEY POINTS: When you find a digital resource, it is helpful to copy and paste this resource into a Google Doc so students can interact with the document.  Reading documents online also helps prepare students for online tests like the CCSS Smarter Balanced Assessment.  Take a look at an assignment which integrates "Room for Debate" resources, Google Docs, and online research.



ACTIVITY: Finding resources can be a daunting task, but working together with colleagues can be a rewarding and time-saving experience. 

For this activity, please take a few moments to peruse any of the above links.  Once you've found a resource item that peaks your interest, please add it to this resource list.  For an extra challenge, see if you can add a clickable link to the resource on the spreadsheet.
