An NFL player is injured by another player during a non-play moment in the game. Is it battery? Thousands of former NFL players band together to bring a lawsuit against the NFL asking for compensation for the long-term effects of their head injuries. Who is responsible? Did the players know the risk when they agreed to play? What about youth Pop Warner players who have faced the same level of damage?
"Head Case" guides students through three high-interest, high-profile court cases. Student compare and contrast the cases, analyze the verdicts, and use the information provided to synthesize a rule regarding head injuries and player safety.
"Head Case" includes a 15 slide PowerPoint and 14 page PDF guide. The guide includes students pages, answer sheets, and 2 pages of probing questions to accompany the PowerPoint Presentation that allow for high student engagement and class discussion.
"Head Case" provides a highly engaging-cross curricular learning experience to actively engage and excite the learners in your classroom!
