Students read 3 pieces of writing and work together with partners to fill out two worksheets on the story "Fear" and Mental Health Screening. Eventually, they write a piece answering the question of "Should students be screened for mental illness and problems if they go to public school? Why or why not?" using the three pieces of Literature. This Lesson is a Common Core lesson that relies heavily on evidence and meaning making from evidence. Rubrics and worksheets are included.
