Thursday, 11/12

I introduced Argument and the “Yes, but...” paradigm in class today. Students listened to an NPR story about prison overcrowding and also began a handout identifying claims and counterclaims around that topic in preparation for a Socratic seminar on Monday. They then began the same for the Florida chapter of the Ehrenreich text. Homework: print 2–3 sources and finish the handout for seminar next class; also, read and annotate the Maine chapter of Ehrenreich.
