Period 4 – Criminal Behavior Lesson Plan (1-18-2017)

There are two routes we can go down today.

 

Route #1

 

If there are Chromebooks in the room, or a significant amount of students have their smart phones available have them follow the steps below.

Step #2

Click on Student

 

Step #3

Enter Room A89559b4

 

Step #4

Type in their real name

 

Step #5

Route #2

 

If there are no Chromebooks in the room or the students do not wish to use their smartphones then they will be writing an essay instead. They can choose one of the ten topics below. Let them know that getting writing samples from them at the beginning of the class is important to me because it shows me their writing ability.

 

  1. Should cigarettes and other tobacco products be outlawed?
  2. Should prostitution be legal?
  3. Do the benefits of medical marijuana justify its legality?
  4. Is the drinking age appropriate (should it be lower, higher, or stay the same)?
  5. Should nuclear weapons be outlawed worldwide?
  6. Should the United States put more restrictions on gun ownership and use?
  7. At what age should girls have access to birth control without the consent of their parents?
  8. Does outlawing controlled substances only create a larger black market?
  9. Should corporations be granted personhood?
  10. In what situations, if any, does a woman have a right to an abortion?
