Today we finished up our "Modest Proposal" assignments by answering the following three questions in the blank space on your storyboard. Each question should be answered in a short PARAGRAPH (3-5 sentences).

1. What is the purpose of satire (in general)?

2. Why does Swift use satire – and is it effective?

3. Based on what you know about this time period, why would satire be a major feature of the “Age of Reason”?

Following this, we read excerpts from Gulliver's Travels, starting on page 566 in the green books. We then answered the following questions: 1-4, 6-8, and 10.
