Have Fun Establishing and Supporting a Claim with Evidence

I enjoy using Crime and Puzzlement tremendously. This is mostly due to the fact that it is so engaging for my students. When my students engage with Crime and Puzzlement, my classroom is alive. Discussion is accountable. Students engage in debates wherein they can be hear supporting their assertions with evidence. I particularly enjoy the sense of accomplishment that Crime and Puzzlement provides to my struggling learners. The argumentative writing skills, like close reading and evidence-based argument, that practiced with Crime and Puzzlement tasks easily translate to the skills assessed by the argumentative writing task on NYS Common Core ELA Regents.
