PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Need a high-interest topic for an in-class impromptu essay? This one will work. I've modeled it after the typical persuasive essay prompt one might find on the ACT or the AP English Language and Comp exam. It's also useful as an exercise in taking a position and supporting it with specific evidence--regardless of whether or not you are preparing your students for a big test, though it certainly works for that.

It would also work well in cooperative groups, wherein students could brainstorm lists of pros and cons, arrive at a consensus, and then report back to the whole group with results, making the writing optional. If you were teaching a unit on research, you could use it as a springboard to locating internet sources of information and opinion.

You could also use it as a debate topic for a speech class.

Note the possible areas of the language arts common core standards that it aligns with, and you'll see lots of potential in this one simple prompt.

Thanks for considering Tim's Tool Box.
