use lead-ins when you include quotes, use quotation marks appropriately, and provide a citation in MLA format. Examples: 1) When Darwish says, Write down!

DAY 1 OF UNIT 3: THURSDAY 10/20 WARM-UP (DO ALONE) Please do this INDEPENDENTLY in your

notebook (start over for Unit 3). Make a list of everything you can think of that people NEED. WITH YOUR GROUP 1)Share your lists of what people need with your group. 2)Keep track of everything that gets repeated. 3)Together, decide on the top 15 NEEDS that your

You must eliminate SEVEN (7) of your groups needs. Put the 7 needs you eliminate in a separate stack. These are now WANTS. NEXT STEP: WITH YOUR GROUP Unfortunately the government still cant provide

for the 8 needs you have left. In order to cut spending, you will need to eliminate 3 additional needs and move those to the wants pile. After this step, you should be left with 5 needs. UNIVERSAL NEEDS REFLECTION QUESTIONS Please respond to these questions,

independently and in your notebook (where you did your warm-up is fine). What items were eliminated first? Why? What is the difference between wants and needs? Do wants and needs differ for different people? What would happen if we had to go on eliminating needs? VOCABULARY: DO WITH YOUR GROUP 1) As a group, IN YOUR OWN WORDS, please define these terms:

1) Define the term human. 2) Define the term rights. 2) Connect the two terms. What does Human Rights mean? 3) Connect Human Rights to NEEDS and WANTS. What do they have to do with each other? HUMAN RIGHTS What are human rights? A right that is believed to belong justifiably to every person.
