Library card sign-up
Warm-up: Return to your brainstorming from last class. With the group I put you with, create a poster that lists the topics pertaining to that category.
Include at least five ideas on your poster.
Each idea should have:
›An explanation of why that issue is a problem
›one possible counter-argument (what would someone with a differing opinion say?)
›one possible idea for a solution.
Individual quick-write: Which topic do you choose?
Take a look at all of the topics the other groups have generated. Make a final decision about the topic that interests you the most. Consider what you care about, what you want to see changed, etc.
›Additionally, write about why you care about this topic.
›What is your stance or position on this topic?
›What are some reasons you can think of that make this topic worth arguing?
›What’s a possible solution you might present?
›What might someone with a differing opinion than you say?
