Reread the essay "School's Out for Summer" by Anna Quindlen to answer these text-dependent questions.

How does the author use the "hook" of the Ad Council's focus groups and slogan to set up her argument about hunger in America?



The slogan is impactful because it is directly related to the rest of the argument. She uses this hook to set up her argument in that it is exactly her argument. She starts by informing people that child hunger does happen in the US and how summer vacation directly impacts child hunger in the US. She then uses this to allude to the proposition that the school year needs to change and that legislation needs to change regarding food stamp applications.
