Product Description

It seems like everywhere you go businesses are asking you to leave online reviews. But what if they don't like what you have to say? Can they sue you?

Cattle Farmer Randy went on a Bigfoot Hunting Tour. The tour lasted about an hour and a half. He saw the mountains, fed some cattle, heard stories about Bigfoot, and went home and left a 3 Star Review. Randy then claims that the company contacted him regarding his review so he changed his score to just 1 star.

Bigfoot Fun Park filed a lawsuit against Randy. Should they win? Let your students decide.

In "Tell Me What You Think" students will consider the liability of writing an online review, check Randy's review against the criteria for defamation, consider the viewpoints of both sides, and write their conclusion using the DRAAW+C Legal Writing Framework! The lesson concludes with an exercise where students write their own reviews and compare it against the four criteria for defamation. Would they be sued? What you post online matters!

"Tell Me What You Think" includes:

- Teacher's Guide

- PowerPoint Presentation

- Student Pages available as Word Documents and Editable PDF

-Pre-made Braincandy Questions (Braincandy is a FREE online platform where students can take polls and answer questions in real time)

All resources are available for download and on Google Docs!

Real life. Real drama. Real engagement.
