Hello 1165,

New room, same heat. At least you have real desks… right?

OK! So we don’t have class till Wednesday, September 27th but I am sending the work now.

Rodman’s Chapters 4 & 5. I MAY give a quiz on one of the chapters. Feeling chapter 4. But I have been known to change my mind.

It got too hot so we couldn’t finish but please watch the 2nd half of “All The President’s Men” documentary. Extra credit to watch and write a nice long reaction piece to the film starring Redford & Hoffman.

– Do you think the term “fake news” is accurate? Why or why not. What word would you use in its place?

– And anything else you want to add here… go for it.
