The Impact of Violent Images

Should newspapers and broadcast news programs show images of violence, destruction, and death? Challenge your class to join the debate. After reading and discussing the New York Times article, “Breaking a Taboo, Editors Turn to Images of Death,” each class member is given an article and an accompanying emotionally charged photograph. Individuals then respond to a series of questions about whether or not the photo should be published.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
