Students will discover the positive and negative effects of abundant oil reserves in the Middle East by making assumptions and drawing conclusions. Students will then choose a positive or negative effect and further examine their topic with research. They will prepare a brief persuasive essay to present at a class discussion or debate. These activities will also address PALS (Process and Literacy Skills).
