Do Now 1.7.15
EQUALITY is our topic for the week. Be sure to write the quote and author correctly and offer some thoughtful response.
"If you have a dog, I must have a dog. If you have a rifle, I must have a rifle. If you have a club, I must have a club. This is equality."

You will have 30 minutes to complete all work on this assignment. Each person must do their own writing. You will be expected to share at the conclusion of our work time.
Hey! So, I was so ready to move on that I pretty much forgot that we never really wrapped things up with FLIPPED. My intention was for you to write a narrative in the style of Flipped- so, the same story told from two different perspectives.

The last reading strategy in the acronym, ACTIVE, is the E- Evaluate! As we finish reading, use your post-its to evaluate the text. This involves:
-Considering how you would have behaved differently or similarly to the character
-Assigning value to choices the author has made about how to write the book or what happens
Think of evaluations as being like educated, thoughtful opinions.
Now, as we read think about what Vonnegut is saying about the idea of equality.
