Dr. Downey asked his class to write about the following topic: McDonalds has been an Olympic sponsor for many years, including the 2010 Winter Games in Canada. The theme of that year's campaign was “Eat like an Olympian.” This theme was criticized for sending the wrong message to children about the nutritional value of McDonalds' food, especially since Olympic athletes typically follow strict diets (no hamburgers and fries) when they are training. A nation-wide student group is considering a letter-writing campaign asking McDonalds to step down as an Olympic sponsor. Do you think McDonalds should step down?
