Lesson 40: Extension task: revise your claim and draft your essay

Students begin the writing process to answer the prompt for the extension task: Consider the opposing arguments about animal cognition and the portrayal of Buck in The Call of the Wild. Given Jack London’s characterization of Buck in the novel and your understanding of animal cognition, should he be considered a nature faker? Why or why not?  They revise a claim given peer feedback, and begin to gather evidence and outline their essay in support of the claim.
