We have spent much class time reading, discussing, dissecting the short story, Harrison Bergeron. The students had several writing assignments regarding Harrison Bergeron such as "What was your reaction to the ending of the story?", "Outline three alternate endings to Harrison Bergeron" and "Write and Alternate Ending to Harrison Bergeron". We had a Alternate Ending to Harrison Bergeron SLAM and the students' endings were superlative! Many of the endings, were original in thought, concisely written, and thought provoking. This was a very interesting and informative unit of study regarding EQUALITY.
We will be studying modern wars for Veterans' Day.
