Product Description
This resource includes an article about two high school girls' basketball teams that were fined and banned from the postseason for "tanking" and a poem about old men feeling young again when they play basketball. Both pieces are original.

This resource includes a lesson plan with estimated times for each part, the article and poem, and the close read questions.

I taught this lesson to a group of sixth graders, and it sparked great debate. I recommend this lesson as an observation lesson. The lesson is ready to print with little preparation other than making copies for the students.
