Sam Hughes had an unfortunate career as Munitions Minister for the Government of Canada. After researching his career, students will be directed to write not a reference letter, but an anti-reference letter for Sam Hughes, warning potential employers why they may wish to pass on hiring Mr. Hughes.
Students will practice using historical evidence to support a position...in this case, the position that Mr. Hughes would be a terrible hire.
A fun, novel approach to a common assignment. Practice using evidence to support arguments, practice clear and effective writing, and throw some shade!
Includes EXEMPLAR and RUBRIC!
