Day 4 Quickwrite – Activity #14 1. Have you ever gone fishing? Did you catch a fish? What did the fish do? How did it behave? Did you eat it? 2. What other experiences have you had with live fish? Do you have an aquarium at home? Have you been to a public aquarium? What did you learn from these experiences? 3. From your experiences, do you think that fish feel pain? Why or why not? Summary – Activity #15 Use your descriptive outline to write a summary of the Rifkin article. Use the summary organizer to help you do this. Summarize the article using the smallest number of sentences necessary. Include all the most important points. Make sure you use your own words: you are not quoting in a summary. Make sure you keep your opinion out of the summary. A summary is about what the author wrote, not whether you agree or disagree. Summary – Activity #16 Have a partner read your summary and evaluate it with the checklist on your handout. Thinking Critically – Activity #17 Complete the thinking critically questions handout. You may work together with your table group. You will not receive points for this work until your entire group is finished.
