Animal Farm Persuasive "Mini" Assignment

Animal Farm Assignment (Chapters 1-9)
Due Friday, March 7th, 2008

1) In one paragraph, defend Napoleon’s actions. Use any rhetorical strategy necessary to achieve this goal. You must use clear information from the text to support your arguments.

2) In one paragraph detail what it would have taken for Animal Farm to be successful (that is, the animals achieving at least a decent to high degree of equality). Please use evidence from the book and also reinforce with any ideas in history and/or government.

Your paragraphs must be at least 9-11 sentences long. Do not merge the two paragraphs. You will do this in place of the dialectical journal for Friday. Be prepared to argue your points in class on Friday. This must be completed on Friday to achieve full credit. If you feel you need to add more information, expand your paragraph up to 13 sentences.
