Today we read a bit more in The Watsons Go to Birmingham --1963.
Then, we started talking about examples of persuasion in our lives and in the media. Students then considered this question: What are issues in your community (H.P., neighborhood, Lakewood, Washington, USA, Earth) that you think need to be changed? They brainstormed an important list.
Homework: Come up with 2 issues that you think need to change and 3 reasons to support your opinion for each issue. You can visit the "Language Arts Documents" page for a template that you can print and use.
