Enjoy your long weekend! Here are a few exciting activities to chase away the boredom!
1) Write an argument analysis of your selected classmate. This should be written as a response to an AP prompt. "Write an essay in which you analyze the methods that *** uses to persuade his or her audience of his or her position on genetic engineering." Be sure to print a copy of the essay you are evaluating and show your annotations. Both will be turned in on Wednesday.
2) This is an add-on -- sorry! Since you just spent time with someone's essay, write a comment on his or her blog about the essay--not a discussion of the techniques, but rather a discussion of the points of argument.
3) Read the handout on SYLLOGISMS. On loose-leaf paper, either illustrate or describe in words both the validity of the logic and the truthfulness of the premises of the 17 syllogisms. Use the two examples as guides.
4) POW due for Period 2.
