Today you shared an informal writing on a topic you consider controversial.  That word controversial is a key vocabulary word for our unit.  Here is the assignment due Monday:

I gave you a large white notecard.

First, write the word CONTROVERSY on the plain side…large letters.  Next use art skills to decorate around the word or even the letters of the word itself.  Use color, design, drawing, etc.  Finally, on the lined side write a definition for the word.  A good one was provided on p. 162 of the text.
