Description of Work

It is 3:30 PM, the final school bell rings and students rush out, tired from a long day of school and ready to go eat some food. The closest food available is the popular fast-food chain, Chick-fil-A. Arriving at the restaurant, Lassiter students laughing, and it becomes super busy due to all the students getting out and the Lassiter teachers in the drive-through to grab a quick meal before heading home to grade papers. There is a strong smell of fried chicken, making customers eager to get their food. Slowly, I realized that all the customers were from Lassiter High School. Students and staff from the school— brought together by a fast-food chain known as Chick-fil-A.

Description of Assignment

Students used the Toulmin Style for their arguments and based them on their own insights as residents of that geographical area. The purpose of the assignment was to ask students to pay attention to the space that shaped them and understand what makes it special.
