Chocolate Milk: An Argumentative Essay


Ladies and Gentlemen,

Over the next few weeks, we will be working on writing an opinion piece - all about chocolate milk. Many school districts are considering the banning of chocolate milk. What do you think?

Anyone who wins arguments consistently can tell you that the way to win is to know both sides better than your opponent(s). So right now, we are collecting evidence on both sides of the chocolate milk issue.

In the comments to this post, please feel free to share links to some of the research you've done. It's also okay to share books, magazine articles, and any other things you find to support one side or the other.

Here are a few of the pieces I've found.

Why Are We Hung Up on Chocolate Milk in School? From US News Health and Wellness

Flavored Milk in Perspective (PDF) From the National Dairy Council

Jaime Oliver's Food Foundation Website

An infomercial video (summarized in one of the articles we've read in class) from the Midwest Dairy Association

The Washington Post: Chocolate Milk Stirs Controversy in Schools

There are plenty of other great things to watch and read on this topic, and I can't wait to see what everyone shares! Thanks for pushing your thinking, Dragons!
