2. Participating in a survey about the future of our society by clicking HERE

3. Reading and questioning "Harrison Bergeron" together

  • Try to make one or two solid connections to the video you watched today, to the survey, or to our society.
  • At the end of the story, pose at least one good Level 3 question.
