Additional Lesson Idea

Letter to the CEO

Using what they learned from watching the documentary, completing the activities, and participating in discussion, students will compose a letter to Glenn Tilton, CEO of United Airlines, evaluating his actions in bringing United through Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Students might consider the effect on the company, its chief officers, and its workers in their analysis.
