Continue the learning journey with the following writing prompt:
In DANGERS OF NICOTINE, have students write a one- to two-page essay to reflect on what they learned from the article. First, have them explain why some teens might want to use nicotine despite knowing the risks. Then they should use a mix of their own prior learning and facts from the article to explain a few of the reasons they found most convincing for teens to stay away from this harmful drug. To conclude, have them reflect on what schools can do to help reduce nicotine use among teens: Are schools already doing enough, or does more attention need to be paid to this issue?
