I unfortunately cannot be with you today. I was asked to attend a Leadership Meetings with other teacher’s today. As a result there will be no warm up.
While I am gone I want you to download the .doc file listed below and answer the discussion questions about terrorism. You have two methods of answering these questions.
If you know how you can download the word document below and then save it as a “google doc” and share it with me (Share it to MrTylersLessons@gmail.com)
Click on the .doc file below to bring up the discussion questions and write your answers on a physical sheet of paper and turn it into me tomorrow.

Ticket Out the Door:
*Due to the fact I am out there will be no ticket out the door today.
Answer the following two discussion questions:
- Discuss the political impact of the term terrorism. Why is it an effective political tool (or weapon, as Cameron Barr describes it) to accuse your opponent of being a terrorist?
- Being able to convincingly claim that your opponent is a terrorist grants enormous moral legitimacy to a party in a conflict. Is it important — or possible — to have a single consistent definition of terrorism? Why? How could such a definition be crafted?
End of Day Note ->
GOOD JOB! The Chrome Book cart looked great when I got back to the classroom this afternoon!
