Product Description
What IS hard work? What's it like to actually try and live off of minimum wage? Should we raise minimum wage? If so, why and how much?

This timed writing prompt mini-unit, a first in a series being uploaded, asks students to critically think about what happens after graduation. What choices will they make? AND, what will drive their decisions?

Morgan Spurlock's 2006 documentary 30 Days invites viewers to critically think about this very real human dilemma. Written in response to his Minimum Wage episode (easily found on YouTube), this timed writing download not only includes the writing prompt, but also a How-To TW guide, sample essay and corresponding rubric. It's a complete mini-writing unit that'll push your students to formulate opinions based on evidence found in the source material.

Thank you so much for taking the time to buy this timed writing mini-unit and check back for more timed writing prompt downloads that'll take the work out of creating a mini-writing unit!

Buyer's Note:
This download should be taught after viewing Morgan Spurlock's 2006 documentary series 30 Days Minimum Wage episode (available on YouTube).
