Sneeze

What constitutes a valuable life? Why? Where do you get your beliefs about this from? (If you don’t believe that all lives are valuable, give examples of types of lives that are not valuable and explain why they’re not. If you believe that all lives are valuable, explain why even serial murderers’ lives and terrorists’ lives are valuable.)

Begin reading “The Most Dangerous Game” as a class.

Define more vocabulary as we go.

We stopped reading on page 45, right after the paragraph that says, “my clothes will fit you I think.”
