HISTORY OF SCIENCE FICTION:

We began our first essay assignment. Today, we discussed the rubric used to evaluate our writing process and final draft and we analyzed the writing prompt.

Claim: Based on the setting, plot and characters of Harrison Bergeron, it can be argued that the thematic message of the story is The need for a perfect society should never outweigh our own individual liberties.

Do you agree or disagree?

Using your story notes, write a response that shows how you agree or disagree with the thematic message that the need for a perfect society should never outweigh our own individual liberties. Clearly state your claim. Use the setting, plot, and characters of Harrison Bergeron as your evidence to prove your claim. Provide a concluding statement that supports your argument.

WORLD STUDIES:

Completed 2.7. We checked grades and turned in missing or late work. Test on thematic maps is Monday.

WASHINGTON STATE HISTORY:

We completed first drafts and used the rubric to evaluate the quality of the draft. The self-scores were placed on sticky-notes and tallied on the board.

The following slides are reminders of the work we have done these past few days in writing our first draft.
