September 12

IRT: ~20 minutes
WNB: Article of the Week - "In the 'land of the free,' are you free to sit out the national anthem?"

I reminded students that the article of the week is a place for more reflective annotations rather than academic or style-based annotations. Students who didn't finish the entry during class time will need to complete it before tomorrow.

We walked through the process of composing a short answer response and embedding quotes, and students took notes on certain features. The slides for these notes are available on Classroom.

Students finished up the THROWDOWN activity with the remaining class time. We will finish this in class tomorrow.
