Pumpkin Ethics

Well, I had a first happen with this writing assignment-every single student took the same side, and it wasn't the pumpkin's! :) Color me surprised. I asked them to make an argument of why it was right or wrong to turn pumpkins into jack-'o-lanterns. Every single student wrote that it was right. We are still working on the reasoning part, they will bring it up and say "it's right because it's right" or "it's right because that's what happens". But the more practice they get the better, the more they'll be able to apply that skill. Here's what they said:

because people love jack o'lanterns

Pin It!
