Cancel Thanksgiving Recess???

Posted on November 21, 2013. Filed under: IRLA Class | Tags: |

You and your partner recently heard a rumor that Thanksgiving Recess is going to be cancelled next year and we will have school on the Thursday and Friday of that week.

There is an upcoming Board of Education meeting and you have decided to attend and present research on this issue — arguing either for the recess to remain on the calendar or supporting the idea that it should be taken off.

During class today, work with your partner to research the holiday.

  • What kind of holiday is it?
  • What is the history of the holiday?
  • What kind of impact would cancelling it have on students, families, the community, the economy?

Make sure that your research and presentation include data, statistics, strong persuasive language and other techniques.

Record your research and your presentation on a page in the Problem Solving section of your ePortfolio.
