JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "Final Hour" by Lauryn Hill; "Time Is the Final Currency" by CPR]
Welcome to the beginning of the end of the beginning. Around this time of year the word "Finals" gives people the idea that something is ending. As you already know, that isn't true for us. We're just getting started. As you reflect on your education to date, what would you like to accomplish in your last semester of high school?
2. Mindmap feedback
3. Vocabulary Final
1. Study for finals (lit terms tomorrow)
2. Pump your fist in the air with pride (if you did yesterday's HW completely/correctly) or hang your head in shame (if you didn't). To those of you in the latter category, pick your head up and finish what you should've started. This isn't about credit; it's about whether you're in or you're out. I will announce the platform and next steps tomorrow (Wed. 12.7) in class.
3. Find a person who has contributed to your success in this course and thank him/her. I just started by thanking Kaley.
