American Literature 1/27 – Socratic Seminar

Today we listened to Senator Cory Booker’s address to the Democratic National Convention.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGUtSY3FqPo

Then we met in a Socratic seminar to talk about the perspectives we explored and the questions which arose over the course of the last week. The seminar resulted in very fruitful discussions and as a follow-up assignment, you are asked to pick two questions to respond to on one page, typed, Times New Roman 12pt, double-spaced (if you cannot type it, hand-written is fine). Make sure to include evidence from the Socratic seminar, the speech, and the podcast to strengthen your argument. This paper is due on Friday, February 3rd.
