Over the weekend, go back and skim read through previous chapters (Ari class look under files in teams). Make notes on the the arguments that the animals and humans both presented in court ( Chapter 4- last week). Think about the daily videos that we have watched about animals ( you can find these on the daily learning pages) and all the other videos which have informed us about the great debate between animals and humans. Bring your notes to your writing lesson on Monday. Next week, we will be discussing whether Xenotransplantation should be legal.
In writing today, you will be editing your writing. When you are editing, look to improve the vocabulary and sentence structures.
