To provide a common source for the "Buy Nothing Day" prompt, watch Annie Leonard's visual argument The Story of Stuff. We'll revisit this piece in a week or two when we examine logical and emotional fallacies, but today we'll be working with it to understand her argument and analyze her rhetorical choices, and will take notes and make connections between this and other texts we've read/observed.

Tomorrow, we'll draft model body paragraphs for the "Buy Nothing Day" prompt using excerpts from The Story of Stuff as evidence.

HW: FINISH READING the script of American Menu--reading quiz tomorrow with 5 true-or-false questions and two short answer questions. Be ready to discuss and analyze the play.
