Bombs Away!

Examine the different perspectives on the future of United States Navy bombing exercises taking place on Vieques, Puerto Rico with this lesson from The New York Times. Here, young learners read "Islanders to Vote on Vieques Bomb Drills," an article about the islanders vote on the issue. Then they draft letters to President Bush that support their own views on the issue. Consider including a second text with a different viewpoint.
