Day 34!

Happy Wednesday!

Today we will begin by discussing the prompt from yesterday. You will start by sharing your answer with a partner, and then we will talk about it as a class.

If you forgot what the prompt was, here it is again:

Would you ever consider breaking a law that you found to be unjust? Why or why not? What does "civil disobedience" mean? Research an example of a time that this tactic has been used by someone other than Henry David Thoreau. Was their use of civil disobedience successful? Why or why not?

After that, we will read a biography about Henry David Thoreau and an excerpt from his essay "Civil Disobedience". As you read, you will answer these QUESTIONS!
