Why Lesson Planet?
Students read an article about a brawl between the Denver Nuggets and New York Knicks. As a class, they discuss whether or not this story should have made front page news. Individually, they write a debate persuading others to think about whether when ahead in a game starters should continue playing or backups should be let in. They pretend they are advisors to David Stern and advise him how to elimate fighting on the court.
