Reading Assignment

Was the Treaty of Versailles a Victory for Democracy by Ted Widmer

Your assignment: E-mail your coach the claim of this article.   What is the author’s challenge to the reader?

Please underline sentences containing:

BIRTHDAY words (But, Instead, Rather, Despite, Although, Yet), colons, dashes, and question marks. I CHALLENGE you to go back after reading and reread JUST the sentences you underline. I bet you can generate the claim just by reading these sentences along with the intro and conclusion (In this case the last two paragraphs because the conclusion is one sentence long.)
