Work Session:

Today we’re going to be reading the editorial “Diners should pay attention to workers, not just the food” on page 210 of your textbook. We will read aloud together as a class, then do the Second Read questions 1-4 on page 212 together as a class discussion

Afterwards, I want to look at some essay construction techniques. Do the Working from the Text activity on page 213, where you disassemble the essay you just read into an outline. The idea here is to really examine how an author organizes their thoughts, so that when YOU do your Counterargument Assignment tomorrow, you will have some good ideas of how to set it up. 

Closing Session: We formally unpacked the Counterargument Assignment last week, but today I want to confirm everyone’s topic and answer any questions. That way, when you get here tomorrow, we can just get right in to working!

Assessment: Informal (book check) 

Differentiation: Process (flexible groups)
