Football Fame Gone Awry

Students read an article about a former football star who was killed by a gang member. In groups, they identify the lessons that can be drawn from Dean's life and write an essay about it. Individually, they create a dialogue between themselves and Dean stating what they would want to say to him when he was still in high school. As a class, they discuss the player's death and design proposals to improve society.

Lesson Planet has greatly assisted me in finding appropriate worksheets to accompany my lesson plans. I recently switched from high school to junior high and needed assistance in finding grade appropriate material.
