Grammar Practice: Pronoun-Antecedent Agreement
Finish logical fallacies posters

Watch and discuss clips from Super Size Me:
hasty generalization: director Morgan Spurlock shows five 1st graders pictures of famous people (George Washington, Jesus) and can only identify Ronald McDonald
sentimental appeal: portrayal of McDonald's, Pepsi, and Hershey cartoon tycoons vs. the skinny Five-a-Day Fruit and Vegetables guy to show discrepancy in direct media advertising

and Bowling for Columbine:
false analogy and faulty causality (post hoc ergo propter hoc): director Michael Moore interviews a Lockheed representative about the messages that a Lockheed weapons facility sends to the young people of Littleton

HW: Complete the two practice multiple-choice passages. Allow yourself 20 minutes. Then check back here for the answers and compare. Look up any unfamiliar words or terms and be ready to discuss on Monday!
