This week, we began with a peer critique of the rough drafts of your argumentative essays. Your final drafts of the argumentative essays are due next Tuesday.
On Thursday, we listened to the infamous 1938 radio broadcast of The War of the Worlds. This broadcast caused mass panic when it first aired as many people thought that the United States had really been invaded by Martians.
Here is a link to the broadcast: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xs0K4ApWl4g
While listening to the broadcast, students completed the response questions (attached below). Please complete any questions you didn't finish in class as homework.
