New vocab 4 assigned.  Quiz will be in three weeks.  Keep up with it regardless of weather.
"Is Perfection Possible?" was the big idea for today.  We read about Ben Franklin; we looked at aphorisms and defined autobiography, talking about the way an author goes about it so that he/she relates back in time in 1st person.  See pps. 268-275; Choose three aphorisms from Poor Richard's Almanac and explain what they mean.  Also, answer 1-4 on pps. 274.

Tues- review of Ben Franklin with a short quiz; review of persuasive writing; prepare for a timed writing on Weds. See pages 280-290.
Weds- ACT timed writing; all absent work will need to made up after school
Thurs-Selected continued topics for ACT and for improving writing (Transition list to be given out sometime this week)
FRI- This is important.  We are scheduled for the lab for our first run on the new ACT the PTO purchased licensing for us to use.  BE HERE!:>)
