This Seventh Grade lesson plan and worksheet uses communication and media literacy to engage students in exploring the issues of trespassing on railroad property. Students discuss real-life trespassing incidents and the glorification of trespassing in the media. Then they develop a legal action letter against one of the companies responsible for the media campaign. An extension to this lesson involves students in creating a mock trial of a trespasser who has caused a train to go off the tracks.
