August 28*

JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "Twenty Questions" by The Beastie Boys; "Philosophers Stone" by Van Morrison]

Think back on your Big Question.  How does it relate (in any way) to what you've learned in this course so far?  How could you tweak the course to more closely connect the dots?

[*PLEASE NOTE: If you wrote on this yesterday before pictures, please either extend your thinking on the topic or pick something else to think about on paper in an attention-commanding sort of way.]

1. Journal
2. Review of our thinking
3. Brainstorm essay topics

1. Post your favorite essay topic from today's class along with a rationale explaining how writing it will help you (title: ESSAY IDEA)
2. Spend some time with vocabulary #2 
3. Read the Personal Statement Worksheet, write, and bring a hard copy draft (preferably typed but neatly written OK) to class tomorrow, Thursday 8.29
4. See you at Hack to School Night

  1. Are we actually writing the personal statement essay or just filling out the worksheet?
