Learning Activity: Considering Consequences
“Your students will learn about the Florida teenager who made an unauthorized trip to Baghdad, and they will consider the possible consequences of his actions from multiple perspectives.”

Right... Something to consider as we jump back into schoolwork after our Christmas/wedding break. If the boys can’t relate to this, I’ll tell them the story of the girl who racked up $40 in overseas long-distance charges while doing research for a report. Points to ponder:
1) $40 was a lot of money in 1971.
2) Your grandparents were calm, even-tempered people. This event pushed their collective envelope.
3) Ask your mother how long it took to work off that debt.
