Stereotyping and bullying have become a major problem in our society. I have taken a creative approach in dealing with this by integrating the topic into a creative writing assignment that satisfies the common core standard of argumentative/persuasive writing. Included is a fun "Wreck it Ralph" writing paper for final drafts.
-Students can start the lesson off by watching the movie trailer of "Wreck it Ralph" on you tube and discuss the dilemmas at hand.
Students can then focus on the writing prompt given at the top of the outline provided. Teacher should go over prompt with class. Outline is made so that when students complete it, they have at least 2 paragraphs.
-Attached is a modified version of the outline for those with special needs.
-When students are finished with their outline, they can then complete their final draft on the decorative lined paper.
