Modest Proposal Argument

Revisit paragraph 29 on page 919 in its context (you've already thought about this in question #9). Using Questions for Rhetoric and Style on page 920-21 (maybe look at question 10 to help with this as well), write a short reflection (try to keep it between 150 and 200 words) on how Swift uses satire coupled with his true ideals, hinted at throughout the piece and especially in paragraph 29, to drive home his argument to his audience.

In the meantime, have a wonderful Homecoming weekend!

PS for 5th period: You DGP quiz average was 74.2%  Very good for not doing anything with grammar over the summer, but not quite 85%. We'll start DGP on Monday!
