Big Bang Theory: Gun Control

Though dated with references to the Bush Administration, this instructional activity would be a good way to discuss current issues, particularly gun control. Using an article from The New York Times (linked to this instructional activity), students 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.

As a first year teacher Lesson Planet was an incrediable help. I could see what other teachers had done to give me ideas. The time guidelines, materials needed and resource information gave me guidance in structuring my own plans. Many of the plans are well laid out and were very usable, which was a great time saver.
