7th: Reading Writing Lab:  The class has a writing prompt on the hot topic issue of gun control.  I’m not trying to push any agenda, and I’m supporting any and all view points on the issue.  The class is writing an argumentative essay on this topic.  They have three stance they can chose from, or they can create a fourth as long as it is in line with the prompt.  They need to create a stance on the topic, and defend the topic.  I encourage the students to look at personal beliefs and family beliefs as a launching off point.  Students have been researching to get facts to help support their side.  If you have questions or concerns about this topic please feel free to contact me.
