After reading Unit 1: Chapter 2 of Urban Reader for College Writers, answer either one (not both!) of the following questions as a comment on this post:
The CIRCLE reports that “80% of students in the study were encouraged in the classes they took to form their own opinions regarding [politics or government].” What is the benefit of students being able to form their own opinions regarding political issues?
What might be some disadvantages of all students in the United States taking the same civics course? Explain and illustrate the potential disadvantages.
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 18th, 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.
