American Literature 2/6 – The National Anthem

Today we read different stories on the National Anthem to prepare for a debate tomorrow. We did not quite finish our preparations in class and will work on it in the beginning of class tomorrow. At 11:20 AM we will begin our debate.

Keep in mind that you will have to base your arguments off of the stories you read. Tonight would be a good opportunity to re-read the story/stories and research additional information to strengthen your argument.

Our overarching question is whether or not the National Anthem seems outdated, how it could be altered, and which effect this would have.

I you were not here today, read all the stories on this website to prepare for tomorrow: http://www.espn.com/espn/feature/story/_/id/18519123/the-national-anthem-experience

I am very excited for an interesting debate tomorrow!
