Finish reading article
Group activity: generate reasons or questions on the
poster paper for each of the persuasive essay topics

HW: Create vocabulary flashcards for any 5 of the new
vocabulary words (index cards were provided)
On a separate piece of paper, select two persuasive topics--
these can be topics we examined in class or other issues
that you believe need to be addressed or changed. Then,
for each topic, list either 5 questions related to the topic that
you want to know more about, or 5 reasons that you think the
way you do about the topic (or any combination of reasons
and/or questions). You should have a total of 10 reasons/questions
listed, over the two topics. Contact me if you have questions.
