Showdown in the New Wild West

What is the root of the conflict between ranchers and environmentalists? Middle schoolers write their impressions of what an environmentalist is and does. They read the New York Times article "In New Wild West, It's Cowboys vs. Radical Environmentalists" and answer related questions. This lesson would be a good way to practice persuasive writing techniques and acknowledge opposing claims.
