Reviewer Comments:

This resource is a lesson plan that explores the issue of the death penalty and the role of religion in influencing people's opinions on the topic.  There is an depth Prezi with engaging content, graphs, and images. The lesson concludes with an assignment in which students predict how individuals might feel about the death penalty by applying what they learned about the relationship between religion and the death penalty.  It is suggested that students either take notes or are provided with an outline to support the learning process.  The lesson and the Prezi can be adapted depending on how teacher determines it is best to inform and engage the students on the topic.
