Something Special
Rhetorical Precis

Quick write: 
Open your English Journal (keep it open)
How does the picture on the blog today relate to the concepts we have been reading about in Undercover Parent and Big Brother Meets Big Mother? 

Something Special:

  • Watch the national news tonight. 
  • Make a list of the countries you hear mentioned. 
  • Trust me, you'll thank me in a few days. 

Write your own precis: 

  1. Open your English Journal (You left it open right?)
  2. Open your copy of "Big Brother Meets Big Mother." 
  3. Write a rhetorical precis of "Big Brother Meets Big Mother" by Ellen Goodman in your English Journal. 
  4. Just FOUR sentences. 
  5. Open Under STUDENT, enter room number 6867
  6. Paste in your NEW rhetorical precis for "Big Brother Meets Big Mother" when you get the question. We will vote on them in a minute. 
Watch the national news
Read your book
Finish your precis if you needed more time.
