Monday, October 20: Essay Examples

1. Students wrote a one-sentence rationale for why they feel their word should be used cautiously. Here is a poster campaign at Duke we took some inspiration from.

2. Students all picked an article to read. Here is one document with all the choices: Essays on slurs. These articles are examples of the kind of thinking and writing students will be doing for this assignment. As they read, students 1) annotated, 2) highlighted researched facts in one colors, and 3) highlighted the author’s opinion in another color.

HW: Finish annotating your article for tomorrow.
