[Locker Searches/Personal Searches] The principal at your school has instituted random locker and backpack/bookbag searches to check for guns, knives, and other weapons. Anyone caught with these weapons will be immediately expelled. The principal argues that the random searches will not only guard against illegal weapons at school but will also will help students feel safer. What is your position on this issue? Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper stating your position and supporting it with convincing reasons.
Your group will complete an All Write Round Robin Session with this topic: each member of the group will need to comment on the paper that is circulating around the table. Each group member must put a comment and then pass it to the next person. You will need to say whether or not you agree/disagree and why.
