Product Description
Give your students a copy of Dunbar's famous poem that makes the point that it is possible to ruin your life in "one riotous day". An explanatory short article on an afternoon theft is a true story used to illustrate lines from the poem. I used to give my students a copy of The Debt and tell them it was my Christmas or Holiday gift to them and one I hoped they would remember. I think the poem would work grades 5-12. I offer the poem and article free because I frequently saw students go to jail or ruin their lives from some rash action. So Happy Holidays to all.
