Here's an idea as you teach a unit, current events, etc...start by having the students take a look at global issues, choose an issue then form hypothesis of what they think is "the right answers," have them share their ideas with each other and field questions, students then investigate whether they are right or not using 3-4 credible sources, they restructure their hypothesis based on new facts, present those facts to classmates, rebuild their presentation, then present it to experts. Finally, decide what should be done next.
All the time you are using rubrics to determine quality (which are handed out before each of the above activities), and at the end of the activity they evaluate each other and the project.
Students work in teams of 2-4.
Just a morning hello!
