On April 23, 1985, the Coca-Cola Company retired the original Coca-Cola recipe. To replace it, a product called New Coke was put on store shelves. Unfortunately, people were outraged. This worksheet briefly explains the introduction and failure of New Coke. Students are then invited to write about a time something important in their lives changed, and they can also explain what they did about it.
Great for a bell-ringer or daily writing assignment!
