 In a speech Abraham Lincoln said,

"A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved — I do not expect the house to fall — but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other. Either the opponents of slavery will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will push it forward, till it shall become lawful in all the States, old as well as new — North as well as South."

Write 3-5 sentences explaining what you think Lincoln meant. Did he call for war?  Did he say slavery is OK?  Express how you interpreted his words. 

In another paragraph, write another 3-5 sentences about how his words could be relevant today.  Are there divisions in the United States?  If so, how are extreme are they?  Is it even relevant?  

Conduct an interview with a family member or friend.  This will likely be the last practice interview.  Use this as an opportunity to practice extracting a story from the person you are interviewing.  Assume you will be writing a story about the person's experience in high school. 

This assignment is due the following day in class.

Use the following questions as a guide to create your own:

What were the best memories you have of high school years?

Who were your friends and what were they like?

What kind of music id you listen to?

What sports, clubs etc. did you participate in?
