Grade 8 Homework due 10-23-17

Study for quiz on active v. passive voice that includes conjugation, identification, and conversion.

Also, start considering one of the following free-write topics (due Wednesday):

What do you feel is the best way to deconstruct stereotypes? How/why?

Is there a place in our society for stereotypical jokes, including, but not limited to, jokes about gender, race, ethnicity, religion, and sexuality? If you choose this topic, focus on a maximum of TWO.

Is the use of cultural, ethnic, or religious slurs acceptable within ones respective cultural, ethnic, or religious group? Why or why not? Explain.

This free-write should be roughly 10 sentences long and loosely follow the response model. You should have one clear point and substantiate it with an example and a complete and thorough explanation.
