We started to map out sacrifices of BNW vs. Our Society

Monday April 13

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today we did a song activity in class (you can find it on the web page), we responded to the activity by answering the following questions:

  • How does this relate to BNW?
    • Think about sacrifices of our own society? What is our price of progress? What are the consequences of our actions? Who is responsible for these consequences?

Our homework for tonight is to read chapters 13-14 in BNW, also if you need to conference with Smith make sure to get in and get that done.
