You may recite the Pledge of Allegiance every day in school, but have you thought about why it’s done? Some people think students should not have to recite the pledge while others think that saying the pledge is an important tradition in United States classrooms. Do you have an opinion about the Pledge of Allegiance? Check out arguments on both sides of the issue, then it’s your turn to answer the question: reciting the pledge, yes or no?
Featuring engaging reading activities and relatable content, the simple-to-follow book, Reciting the Pledge, Yes or No?, allows young learners to construct their own persuasive statements.
