*A copy of today's discussion questions are attached to this blog entry.
Reminder: Homework check for Outsiders Journal Entry #1: Anticipatory Response will be on Tuesday, November 13th.
SS - Students read over the assignment, "Humanist Persuasive Paragraph" today in class, which is posted here in purple:
Now that you have interviewed a partner and shown how they are a humanist, you are now going to examine yourself as a humanist. You will need to address which area of humanism you are strongest in.
Remember your choices are:
Assignment: Write a well developed persuasive paragraph, justifying why you think this is your strongest area of Humanism. Use specific examples that you discussed with your partner to back up your reasoning.
After reading over the assignment, we discussed proper paragraph writing, and reviewed the paragraph writing guide. Lastly, as a class we wrote one group paragraph. On Monday, students will be writing their own persuasive paragraphs.
(8E would like to introduce their new friend Gertrude, also known as Lil G, who wrote their paragraph.)
