Consider these questions:

  • How would you define freedom?  What is it?  What is it NOT?
  • Do you believe freedom is worth risking one’s life?  Why or why not?
  • Why do you think some people embrace freedom while others fear freedom? 
  • Do you think that Americans today value freedom as much as the colonists did in the late 1700s?  Why or why not?

Consider these questions carefully and thoughtfully.  Share your thoughts and responses to these questions in a reflective paragraph of 10-12 sentences.  Provide specific reasons to support your ideas.

Please go to http://webtech.cherokee.k12.ga.us/creekview-hs/MediaCenter/unit_2.htm to get started on our project tonight.  I will assign you the writer for your project.

You may do this project individually or with one partner.  If you work with a partner, choose carefully as both partners will receive the same grade.

This assignment will count as a project grade, and it will be due on Monday, February 4, 2008.
