Analyzing a Writer's Stance

Should college admissions decisions be based on whether whose family members attended? Secondary learners read and respond to a New York Times article on the issue of 'legacy preferences' in college admissions. Following class discussion, readers receive a specific point of view in the argument and must research and defend it in a roundtable debate. Students may write a letter to the editor on the topic of legacy preferences.
