JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "Freedom of Choice" by Devo; "Freewill" by Rush]

We use phrases like "pay attention" and "make a decision" all the time-- what do they mean to you? How would you teach a child to do either?  How might you improve your own abilities in these areas?

AGENDA:
1. Journal
2. "The Laughing Heart" as argument
3. "The Right to Your Opinion"
4. Self-determination

HW:
1. Record your recital of "The Laughing Heart" and post to your blog
2. Introduction to Satire:
  • Find three sources you believe qualify as satire.
  • Post links, screen shots, or other references to these sources on your blog.
  • Explain (in 1-3 sentences) why you believe each is an example of satire.
