Students are writing their own modest proposal based on an issue in the world that they have selected.
We finished the planning worksheet from yesterday, and began writing our proposals.
After identifying the elements that made "A Modest Proposal" such a horrifying, but effective proposal, students charted out their very own 'modest proposal'.
We will begin writing tomorrow.
After reading, students have questions and a graphic organizer to break down this complex text.
We discussed the genre satire--where we take serious issues and make light of the problems with laughable, but awful solutions--and began reading "A Modest Proposal" by Jonathan Swift.
Students identified issues in society, and wrote a paragraph (using paragraph structure) for how to solve the issue.
We have recommenced vocabulary!
Vocab packet is due Wednesday, assessment is in three weeks!
Today we took our required semester two type two pre assessment.

Students, using the questions below, wrote TWO letters for their goals this semester. One letter is addressed to me, and the other is addressed to the student's future self.
