PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Idea Football is designed to be a visual aid/tool to help students brainstorm and defend their thinking. The concept is this: the Writer (Quarterback) has an Idea (Football) and must build a Defense (Offensive Line) for that Idea. In writing, the Football will be the thesis/central thought of the essay and the Linemen will be the supporting details, evidence and topic sentences for paragraphs. This can be used for any subject, any topic, any grade.

You may also want to allow your students to act out their “plays”, recruiting other students as linemen to help them defend their Idea. In the spirit of competition and healthy debate, you may also allow a defensive team to try to “get through” the Linemen and tackle the Quarterback and take his/her Idea.

Before doing this activity, you may want to show your students a clip of an actual football play to enhance the concept.

Have fun!
