Why Lesson Planet?
Do military recruiters plan to visit your campus? If so, the visit presents an opportunity for class members to engage in a series of action projects. Class members interview recruiters, propose a PTA meeting to discuss the pros and cons of military recruitment of high school students, write essays on why they would or would not consider joining the military, conduct Internet research, and read war literature. Carefully consider your community before using this plan. Although an attempt is made to present a balanced view, the preponderance of literature suggested is anti-military.
