TU FUI EGO ERIS
During our last two weeks of LP 4, we continued our unit on persuasive and argumentative writing.
Students finished sharing their Advertisement Projects. We then explored the concepts of Ethos, Pathos, and Logos further, partly through the example of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "Letter from Birmingham Jail." This assignment is attached below.
Next, in preparation for writing arguments, students completed a Detective Activity titled, "Slip or Trip." This activity required students to collect evidence and draw conclusions from the evidence. In a similar form, students will be collecting research and drawing conclusions from the research for their argumentative essays. The detective activity is attached below. The "written report" portion of the assignment was submitted for a grade.
Lastly, we discussed other aspects of writing arguments, including counterargument, and I assigned an Argumentative Essay. The rough draft of this assignment is due on March 8th, our first day back after Meeting Week. The assignment packet is attached below.
