  29. I got 100 percent and the questions and answers are below. 1:✔ 2:✔ 3:✔ 4:✔ 5:✔ 6:✔ 7:✔ 8:✔ 9:✔ 10:✔.
    1: Which sentence from "Lessons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr." best shows that Chavez is trying to connect with his audience to persuade them to join his cause?

    ✔ "My friends, as we enter a new decade, it should be clear to all of us that there is an unfinished agenda"
    "Pesticides have created a legacy of pain, and misery, and death for farm workers and consumers alike."
    "We have witnessed truckloads of grapes being dumped because no one would stop to buy them."
    "Our workers labor for many hours every day under the hot sun, often without safe drinking water"
    2: Read the excerpt from "Lessons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."

    Economic pressure is the only language the growers speak, and they are beginning to listen.

    Please, boycott table grapes.

    Which persuasive element does Chavez use in this passage?

    using words to connect with the audience
    using facts to support an argument
    ✔ stating a clear purpose or goal
    creating a strong introduction
    3: Read the excerpt from "Lessons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."

    My friends, as we enter a new decade, it should be clear to all of us that there is an unfinished agenda, that we have miles to go before we reach the promised land.

    Which words in the passage show Chavez’s attempt to connect with his audience?

    ✔ my friends
    new decade
    unfinished agenda
    promised land
    4: Read the excerpt from "Lessons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."

    The crop which poses the greatest danger, and the focus of our struggle, is the table grape crop. These pesticides soak the fields, drift with the wind, pollute the water, and are eaten by unwitting consumers.

    The poisons are designed to kill and pose a very real threat to consumers and farm workers alike.

    What is Chavez’s purpose in this passage?

    to inform people about how farmworkers and consumers work together to fight the dangers of pesticides
    to convince people that pesticides are used mainly in the fields where table grapes are grown
    to entertain people with stories about the ways in which pesticides travel from the fields into homes
    ✔ to persuade people that everyone is affected by the harmful chemicals found in pesticides
    5: Read the excerpt from "Lessons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."

    The time is now for people, of all races and backgrounds, to sound the trumpets of change. As Dr. King proclaimed, "There comes a time when people get tired of being trampled over by the iron feet of oppression."

    The strong language in this passage shows that Chavez wants people to

    feel that true equality is a nearly impossible goal.
    always follow in their leaders’ footsteps.
    ✔ work together to fight against social injustices.
    change their opinions about peaceful resistance.
    6: Read the excerpt from "Lessons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."

    In our life and death struggle for justice, we have turned to the court of last resort: the American people. And the people are ruling in our favor.

    As a result, grape sales keep falling. We have witnessed truckloads of grapes being dumped because no one would stop to buy them. As demand drops, so do prices and profits. The growers are under tremendous economic pressure.

    We are winning, but there is still much hard work ahead of us. I hope that you will join our struggle.

    Which sentence clearly states the purpose of Chavez’s speech?

    "And the people are ruling in our favor."
    "As a result, grape sales keep falling."
    "As demand drops, so do prices and profits."
    ✔ "I hope that you will join our struggle."
    7: Read the excerpt from "Lessons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."

    The prestigious National Academy of Sciences recently concluded an exhaustive five-year study which determined that pesticides do not improve profits and do not produce more crops.

    What, then, is the effect of pesticides? Pesticides have created a legacy of pain, and misery, and death for farm workers and consumers alike.

    Based on the details and language in this passage, the reader can conclude that Chavez wants to

    inform people about how long pesticides have been studied.
    ✔ convince people that pesticides do much more harm than good.
    entertain people with stories about the profits of pesticides.
    persuade people to support scientists who study pesticides.
    8: Which detail from "Lessons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr." best supports the theme that the fight for social justice often requires determination and sacrifice?

    "[Dr. King] once stopped an armed mob, saying: ‘We are not advocating violence. We want to love our enemies. . . . Be good to them. . . . We must meet hate with love.’"
    ✔ "Dr. King knew that he very probably wouldn’t survive the struggle that he led so well. But he said, ‘If I am stopped, the movement will not stop. . . . For what we are doing is right.’"
    "Dr. King’s dedication to the rights of the workers who are so often exploited by the forces of greed has profoundly touched my life and guided my struggle."
    "The United Farm Workers are dedicated to carrying on the dream of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr."
    9: Read the excerpt from "Lessons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."

    The children live in communities surrounded by the grape fields that employ their parents. The children come into contact with the poisons when they play outside, when they drink the water, and when they hug their parents returning from the fields. . . .

    We have no choice, we must stop the plague of pesticides.

    How do the examples in this passage best support Chavez’s purpose?

    They show the types of difficult labor that farm workers do so that people will stand up for them.
    They show the hardships that farm workers experience so that people will act to protect them.
    They show the harmful role that pesticides play in communities so that people will try to improve them.
    ✔ They show how the dangers of pesticides are spread so that people will work to get rid of them.
    10: Read the excerpt from a speech by Cesar Chavez, "Lessons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."

    During my first fast in 1968, Dr. King reminded me that our struggle was his struggle too. He sent me a telegram which said, "Our separate struggles are really one. A struggle for freedom, for dignity, and for humanity."

    I was profoundly moved that someone facing such a tremendous struggle himself would take the time to worry about a struggle taking place on the other side of the continent.

    Just as Dr. King was a disciple of Gandhi and Christ, we must now be Dr. King's disciples.

    Dr. King challenged us to work for a greater humanity. I only hope that we are worthy of his challenge.

    The theme that “all people who fight for freedom are united” is best supported by
    ✔ the fact that Dr. King sent Chavez a telegram offering support.
