Helloooooo, Period 2! It is the beautiful day of Tuesday, November 13. Today in class we started off with going over our homework for the evening. (And trust me, it's a lot!) Since we had an awesome time of advising each other on our TIB essays, tonight we need to edit them. Once people are done with their essays, they should record their essays on podcasts. Also, if groups need to work on their Chosen background presentations...they should do so! And our favorite...SAT! (Last SAT of the semester, people!)

After we went over the homework, Mrs. Smith read us a thank you letter from President Cale of North Alabama University, who complimented us on our deeper thinking. 'Cuz let's face it people, we are deep-thinkers!

We edited each others' TIB essays next. To figure out whose paper we would read, we rocked out to some Beatle's music in musical chair editing. Things that we concentrated on when editing were symbolism and focusing on one main belief. We also had to have the story connect to ourselves, but it had to be between 350-500 words. (We checked this using word count under tools.) The last things we kept in mind were not preaching to the reader and being positive!!

We didn't have much time to work on it, but we ended class by starting our Chosen background presentations. We will also have tomorrow and Thursday to work on them, and we present them on Friday.

That's all for today, folks! Maddie, signing out!
