Great article, my daughter really enjoyed reading it!

Great for an all boy group - they were engaged. Thanks!

I will use this to help the students learn the organization of reasons and examples in opinion writing.

The PE teacher at my school would love to use this as a tool to integrate reading and writing in her class. I am passing it on to her. I know it will make for some rich discussion.

I like the structure of this passage. It allows for easy discussion of pros and cons.
Thanks.

Thank you, the students enjoyed working on this passage.
