Product Description

Students will first find out what a claim is, then read information about the current Washington Redskins Controversy. Should the team name be changed, as the Oneida Nation wishes OR should it remain the Redskins, as it has been for the last 81 years?

This is a VERY important topic and we need to teach students how to be sensitive to cultures other than our own! This project shows students why, how, and what we can do to make a difference and put an end to racism in the United States.

  • There is an article, student opinions, and a letter from the Oneida Nation included.
  • Students will then use the graphic organizer provided to write down notes and plan their essay stating their own claim.
  • Students will then begin to plan an essay where they will take a stand, making their own claim using specific details from the texts they read.

This activity allows students to read articles, while practicing using text details to support their claim, a common core standard of writing.

Enjoy!
