New Jersey Eighth-grader Has an ELA Assignment on Contracting Herpes from a One Night Stand




On Tuesday, November 03, 2015, an eighth grader brought the following teacher-made assignment home from his language arts class at Myron L. Powell Elementary School in Cedarville, New Jersey (click on image to enlarge):

NJ ELA one night stand


The assignment reads:
You had a really rotten day, but lucky for you, your best friend is having an awesome party later. You go to the party and start drinking. You have a little too much to drink and start talking to this girl/guy you’ve never seen before. You head upstairs to get better acquainted despite several friends telling you that you don’t even know this person. You end up having sex with this person. The next day you really can’t remember everything that happened and rely on your best friend to fill you in. A week later you find out that you contracted herpes from your one night stand and that this is a disease that you will have all your life and never know when an outbreak will occur.
Thirteen-year-olds are then asked to write a “reactive response” to the scenario, which is supposed to be connected tSean Covey’s bestselling book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens.
