The Nacirema/final "Babylon" activity

We spent most of the period talking about this odd North American tribe the Nacirema, and then I assigned the final activity of this unit: a creative writing assignment (see Honors 10 class resources). HOMEWORK tonight is to do some prewriting/exploration about the premise of the story which I will check at the beginning of class tomorrow.
