December 13

IRT: ~20 minutes
WNB: What's so "awkward" or "uncomfortable" about silence? (Inspired by student reflections on Friday's Socratic seminar.)

We read and analyzed Adlai Stevenson's "Cat Bill Veto" for elements of argument and persuasion.

We read excerpts from Antigone and Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "Letter from Birmingham Jail." Students worked with a partner to analyze the pieces. We will continue this work tomorrow.

Coming Up:
Thursday, 12/15 - Argument and Persuasion test
Friday, 12/16 - Blog due
Monday, 12/19 - Bring device!
