PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product is designed to help students develop and improve upon their persuasive writing by using a relevant and noteworthy event in the news. Students analyze the response Colin Kaepernick gave to the media regarding his refusal to stand for the National Anthem. Then, students will rewrite select excerpts in an effort to make Kaepernick’s opinion clearer and better supported by specific evidence.

Disclaimer: This lesson neither promotes nor rejects Kaepernick’s views or actions. As teachers, it is important that we provide our students with the knowledge and skills to form their own opinions and properly support them. Thus, we must address controversial issues. Whether you agree or disagree with him, Kaepernick failed to adequately convey his opinion and back it up with concrete evidence in the excerpts provided. With this lesson, students will have the opportunity to rewrite his words in order to better prepare themselves to deliver their own persuasive material.
