Product Description
Students will love this lesson !! Teaching nonfiction and struggling to capture your students’ interest? This uses the much-loved documentary, Supersize Me, as the vehicle to teach the pros and cons of the fast food technology, as well as the link between literary and informational nonfiction. Supersize Me is a wonderful combination of both story and facts. It reaches the balance students need to provide important information that will impact their health today and in the future, as well as the story of a man and his (self-inflicted) vices that we can all identify with. Included is your lesson plan for the day with Activator, Mini Lesson, Activity, Wrap Up, and overarching ELA Common Core Standard. A fast food survey, fast food facts for jaw dropping effect for even the most health conscious in your class, and then a reflection component with one question which makes a hypothesis as to the effects of fast food on Morgan Spulock’s health and two more reflection/writing questions following a clip each from Supersize Me. This is engaging, fun, and even your must reluctant anti-classwork/discussion/reflection hard-to-reach student will respond to discussing something ALL teens and pre-teens love, FAST FOOD. Have fun and best, Rockermom
