TW: Synthesis (Locavores)

Continue to gather sources for local issues research paper--email experts using my template, set up and conduct phone or in-person interviews as needed, search local newspapers, the city and school websites, and other online sources

HW: Be prepared to discuss Benjamin Barber's "America Skips School" on Monday: Identify the most significant paragraph, sentence, and symbolic word, and be prepared to discuss how Barber uses exaggeration/humor, repetition, and the diction of democracy within the text to craft his argument. Further, look for points of overlap between "America Skips School" and The Pact as we wrap our education unit.
