In Class - Briefly discuss President Obama's speech on education. Group work: take your two arguments (homework from last Friday) and discuss these in groups. Then, take a look at the handout with arguments of why torture should be used to gain intelligence from detainees. Write a short paragraph telling me why these arguments solidify the argument of why torture should be used or why these arguments do not. Turn in before you leave.
Homework - Current events on the issue of torture. Check out the following articles (and yes, you may use these as your current events!)
QOW - There is no question of the week for this week. We will pick this up next week.
