Homework for 9/9

I gave an assignment today for students to draw/write about what their community/world would look like in a state of nature.  While violence may be a part of a “state of nature,” this isn’t a blank check to write/draw “crazy” stuff.  Some kids are getting carried away and drawing violent things, and they’ve been told to keep it appropriate.


A “state of nature” is John Locke’s philosophical world without laws or governments (thereby highlighting the need for them).
