Jane Goodall and Developing writing questions for our opinion piece.

goodall-1As a class we have read a book on Jane Goodall, watched films and discussed her and chimpanzees in class extensively. We are in the process of developing an opinion piece that we will answer using the 5 paragraph template. Today we are going to watch a short film by a lawyer who wants to give chimpanzees person status. His thesis is an interesting: If Chimpanzees share more than 98 % the same genes (DNA) as us, then they are less  like a thing and more like a living being.  Then he says it follows that they like us have rights. Rights that cannot be taken away from them.  Lets watch here and discuss with an eye to creating a writing prompt that we can respond to.
