Public service announcement

My lovely 8th graders are in the process of perfecting the art of writing persuasive essays. One of the two topics they were writing about dealt with allowing girls to play on the boys football team at school. Reading their persuasive essays are always entertaining due to their reasons they provide in their paper. For example, did you know that girls should not play football because it will lead them to developing breast cancer due to lack of padding!
When reading their essays I have two options to cry or to laugh. This young man's essay lead to automatic laughter. My para questioned his research and when I asked this student about his essay he instantly threw his hands in the air and said "I know" and covered his face as he walked away.
