21,500 More Troops to Iraq

Pupils read an article about the possibility of sending more troops to Iraq. As a class, they participate in a mock trial in which they decide if it is necessary to build schools in the war-torn country. Individually, they role play the role of an Iraqi militant in which they write an editorial in which they consider the building of schools as propaganda. As a class, they discuss what might happen if the soldiers are not paid for their service.
