Part IV: Short answer


6

You will have two writing prompts to choose from when you answer one
short story question. One of the prompts focuses on The First Amendment,
so you should know the five freedoms it guarantees. The other prompt
focuses on the “Harvest of Wisdom” video we watched in class, so you
should review the notes you took on the worksheet during that video. You
can find those worksheets in your folder if you turned them in. Take the
worksheets home if you’d like, but bring them back to class to return to
your folder on Friday.

*You will receive extra credit for handing this completed sheet
in by Friday.
