Pranks, Hoaxes & Scams

Pranks, Hoaxes & Scams

Great fun pack that investigates the types of Pranks, Hoaxes and Scams that are carried out in a variety of circumstances - on the web, in the classroom, in the news and so on. Students identify the differences and get an understanding that this is not a new thing - it all started with Jonathon Swift (Gulliver Travels). These pen and paper worksheets explore this type of humor and discusses the impact it might have on the victim. I really enjoy teaching about humor in the classroom and this is another of my packs that my classes have been working on. I also use the topic to cover off some 'bullying' issues and make sure that all students understand that a prank can often have a negative effect on someone else - and so needs to be avoided. The pack is also great for introducing the topic of email scams and how they can impact people who are not wary. 28 pages including a comprehensive Answer Key I'd be really disappointed if anyone is not happy with these packs, so if that's you, please get back to me and your money will be very happily refunded. I'd really like some feedback too, so all comments most welcome. ************************************************************ Learn more about the author at Malcom Brown

Gun Control | Gun Rights **NEWLY UPDATED**

Gun Control | Gun Rights **NEWLY UPDATED**

A challenging topic, but one that needed to be discussed in my class. The worksheets cover both sides of the debate about gun control and the right to bear arms, and students are encouraged to develop their own opinions. The worksheets created a lot of discussion by focussing on the slogans, the statistics and analyzing and rewording the Second Amendment. This pack includes 12 worksheets on different aspects of the topics and like all of my work, approaches the activities from a cross-curriculum point of view. So the activities include graphing tasks, language analysis, interpreting political cartoons and identifying arguments in a debate. There is also an answer key at the end of the pack, with possible responses to all debating points.
