You will prepare for a debate on the topic: "The clear-cutting of rainforests". You will use the resources listed in the "Resource Content Block", located on the right side of this page, to research 3 arguments made by an environmentalist, against clear-cutting, and 3 arguments made by an industrialist, in favor of clear-cutting. You will use WGS_Environmentalist v Industrialist Graphic Organizer_Unit 3 to help gather the evidence you collect in your research.
Upload and attach your completed WGS_Environmentalist v Industrialist Graphic Organizer_Unit 3 to the Exit-Ticket in the HUB. Remember to include your name.
Revisit the Learning Targets and complete the post-assessment, citing evidence in the last column.
