Big Bang Theory: Gun Control

Though dated with references to the Bush Administration, this lesson would be a good way to discuss current issues, particularly gun control. Using an article from The New York Times (linked to this lesson), young scholars answer discussion questions about gun control. They are divided into four groups to research different standpoints on gun control, including the Executive Office, Congress, Gun Control Opponents, and Gun Control Advocates. Extension activities are included.
