This document is designed to replicate the Persuasive Essay on the AP French exam. Students are given a prompt and asked to defend their position using three sources--two written and one listening. This prompt asks students to state their position on whether or not they believe that students should be able to wear religious symbols in French schools. Sources include an article about La Laicité, an excerpt from the French Constitution, and an interview with an educator in France who explains how to teach Liberté and Laicité in French schools.
This essay fits into a human rights unit.
