Task #1

I would like to keep us on track despite me not being able to be with you today. On Friday, before you left, we created a google document entitled “9-11 Discussion Questions” and you shared it to me. Open this document up and then watch the video below. While you are watching, pause the film from time to time and answer the discussion questions in an academic fashion. That means stating claims and backing them up with three supporting bits of evidence. No answer should be under four sentences.

If the video link gets blocked by the school firewall try watching the video below. I embedded it into my website and hopefully it works. 2nd period it may still be processing. If that is the case do Assignment #2 while the video is still converting and then watch the video.

For those of you who were gone on Friday (1-8-2016) download the .doc file below, save it as a google doc, and share with

*There will be no Ticket Out the Door Today.


Tonight, I want you to write a paragraph answering the question “Of all possible targets in the United States, why do you think that the terrorists attacked the World Trade Center?” This paragraph will be like all others and done in an academic style. Claims will be backed up by three pieces of evidence. You can feel free to e-mail me your paragraph at or write it out and hand it in tomorrow.
