I can determine the central idea of both a text article and a video and explain how the author/speaker develops each and responds to conflicting viewpoints (RI 2 & 6)
As you come into class, grab a packet from the front table. Today we are focusing on a controversial topic, women wearing a hijab. We will begin together with a short TED Talk.
What’s Going On:
Spend the day continuing your packet by reading the two included articles and answering the questions.
Finish by writing a Claim Cite Clarify stating which argument regarding wearing a hijab is most convincing. Be aware: you are not writing about your personal views of hijab-wearing, so be sure you discuss the views shared within your selected text.
Self-assess your writing using the CCC Rubric.
Turn your work into the bin and, if time permits, prepare to play a round of Blooket with our new vocabulary to end the day.
