Is milk good for you or not good for you? In this lesson, found on the New York Times Learning Network, students explore both sides in the debate over milk's health benefits and risks by reading and discussing, "Debate Over Milk: Time to Look at Facts." Students critically view and analyze pro-milk and anti-milk Web sites using the "Six Questions to Ask About Any Media Message." They then compose expository reflection about the persuasive techniques used in media messages.
