Today we'll discuss last night's debate, then turn our attention to our current assessment, Due Monday, October 22. Use today's class to keep learning about your topic, finding examples that can help you talk about it, and maybe even begin drafting your introduction and the rest of the essay. 

Debate links:
NY Times section by section transcript with graphs and fact checks. 
The Debate in Two Minutes, from the Washington Post (be sure to plug in ear buds if you'll be watching this in class). 
Fact-Checking the Debate, if you want to know how accurate the candidates were in their statements. 

And, believe it or not, there was a Washington State Governor's debate last night, too, between Jay Inslee and Rob McKenna. Learn about that one here
