(2-3 pages, double spaced)
The two letters by Baldwin and Coates we have read–as well as the accompanying documentary film we’ve seen – speak out on inequality and injustice. For Unit 2, write a letter to the next generation about a social issue that concerns you. Identify who you are, background about the issue, and specific current events or experiences that have led to your concern. Address whether you feel there are potential solutions to this problem, and what they might be.
For additional background information on your issue, find and refer to an article on the topic you found in the New York Times.
Integrate a quote from this article (and perhaps one from Baldwin and/or Coates), using “the quote sandwich.”
