					Capital Punishment

Our Leaders—Lesson Plan 1

Objective:
Students will research their local or national leaders / representatives / politicians position
on the issue of capital punishment. Students will write a letter to their selected individual
either applauding their opinion or encouraging change.

Preparation:
             The teacher shall create a list of leaders for students to choose from for
              research

               The teacher shall create a timeline and rubric for letters to be mailed out /
                emailed

               The teacher may choose to lead a discussion on the issue of capital
                punishment


Procedure:
               Students will select their person to research

               Students will research their individual to discover their opinion on the
                issue of capital punishment

               Students will form their own opinion on the issue and determine if they
                agree or disagree with their leader

               Students will write a letter or email to their leader expressing their
                agreement or disagreement with the position


Modifications:
             Assign specific people for research (well known leaders may be easier to
              relate to)

               Provide websites to use for research

               Provide outline or sample of letter

               Offer assistance by starting a sentence for the student and having them
                finish it

               Extend time for assignment
