Everyone get out 4 half-sheets of paper and number them “Presentation 1” – “Presentation 4”. You will use these to write a short, one-paragraph response to each of your classmates’ presentations. Groups 1-4, come see me so I can pull your stuff up on my computer!

Today we will have groups 1-4 presenting their essays!

After each presentation, respond with a 1-paragraph blurb in which you discuss how the essay presented relates to the American Dream.
