Dear Humanities Classes,
Today, we talked about fact versus opinion, and how sometimes, discerning the difference may be difficult. Here is the BrainPOP video we watched.
Tonight for homework: create an opinion or statement about one character from the story. Support your ideas with evidence from the text. (See the example below.)
You will write your response in a Word document (or Pages) and save it as “Evidence_name” (for example, “Evidence_Tina”). Do NOT create a Google Doc, because you cannot upload it to MB.
Submit to ManageBac on Friday before 3 pm. (On Thursday, you will learn how to access MB during Homeroom after lunch.)
(This book takes place during the Civil War. To learn more about the Civil War, watch this video.)
Justin Bieber is a poor role model, because he makes bad choices, he endangers others and he gets into trouble with the law.
He makes bad choices, like spitting from the hotel balcony at his fans who were waiting below. He endangers others by speeding in a residential area. He gets into trouble with the law, where he was arrested for drug use and for driving while intoxicated. (You can expand and be more specific with each piece of evidence.)
Wait, who are the characters?
If you remember the characters, post them in the comment box below to help your classmates remember as well. *Your comments will not post until I approve them.*
