This quick write features a youtube clip of Rick and Dick Hoyt. This clip is followed by three different questions that students can choose to answer in a journal prompt. I have used this clip in both an English classroom and a Religion. In English I have used it as part of a courage unit and how it takes courage for someone to follow their dreams and challenge how people view those who have disabilities. In Religion, I have used it to support the importance and value of human life and how all people can contribute to our world.
It includes an explanation for Extreme writing and how to implement it into your classroom.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.
