Now that Bilbo’s adventure is finally over I have a question for you. 

How has Bilbo been changed forever? Will he ever be the same? Explain using your own ideas and examples from the text.


We have spent a substantial time reading about and discussing the topic of zoos an whether they are a good or bad thing for animals. Now it is time to leave your opinion in the form of a persuasive text. Make sure to use those persuasive techniques we have talked about such as questions, using emotional arguments, and supporting your ideas with excellent evidence and examples.

I look forward to reading your entries. Please feel free to comment on others arguments and points of view.
