Monday, Feb. 27th

Vaughn and Cole presented on chapter 4 today.  Instead of a worksheet, you will be writing a NEWSPAPER ARTICLE on “The Battle of Cowshed.”  It should answer the questions WHO? WHERE? WHY? WHEN? HOW? according to the facts in chapter 4, but it should be written with BIAS, as an example of propaganda.

If your right thumb was on top, you are a HUMAN BEING.  If your left thumb was on top, you are an ANIMAL.  You will make the other side LOOK BAD.  Use the phrases from Thursday’s class (taken from the Gulf war articles), and use the propaganda techniques we discussed in a previous class.

You should also use at least 10 vocabulary words from the chapters we have covered.  This is due on Wednesday, March 1st.

Read chapter five for next class when Evan and Gurinder will present.
