They discussed with a partner and then we shared out as a class. Finally, students were asked to write a new paragraph starting with the assertion provided and adding the CEI steps of ACE-IT on their own. They were to choose only one piece of evidence. If you were absent, do this at home and bring in your paragraph for a grade.
