After reading Unit 1: Chapter 1 of Urban Reader for College Writers, answer the following question as a comment on this post:
Do you support the call for more civics in the classroom?
If yes, how do you propose we add it to the curriculum, keeping in mind the important classes students are already taking and the eight-hour school day?
If no, why not? Why not? What suggestions do you have to maintain a civics-educated population without school instruction? How do you suggest educating our population about civics without classroom instruction? Explain.
Be as detailed and as opinionated as you like. You may speak about a personal experience, or just discuss the idea in general.
You must post a comment answering this question by noon on Sunday, September 11th, and you must reply* to at least one post by a classmate before class on Tuesday. You may feel free to post as many times and as much as you like beyond the minimum requirement. Have fun with it!
*Note: Replies must be well thought out and complete sentences. Saying “I agree” is not enough. With what do you agree (or respectfully disagree)? Why? Do you have suggestions, additions? Be thorough.
Note: Don’t forget your vocabulary log, which will be due at the end of the unit.
