This controversial writing assignment is a great pre-reading activity or writing activity that engages students and causes them to think about whether the laws/rules provided are considered unjust or just.
I used this assignment before my students read "Total Control in North Korea", an information text found on CommonLit. (https://www.commonlit.org/en/texts/total-control-in-north-korea)
They also used this assignment as a pre-writing tool before they started their persuasive essay over "Is it more important to do what you believe is right or to follow the rules?"
This is a great ethical vs. legal tool.
This is also editable :)
