March 30

JOURNAL TOPIC: ["Foolin" by Def Leppard; "The Fool On the Hill" by The Beatles; "What Kind Of Fool Am I" by Marvin Gaye]

Kind of sad that April Fool's Day falls on a weekend this year and we can't take full advantage. Nevertheless, it makes me think of the surprises in life that require us to think and act in order figure something out. During last week's Socratic seminars many of you talked about how we learn best when there is no safety net and we are confronted with a problem or an opportunity. Describe such an event in your life (whether you were fooled or doing the fooling). ***Relate this to a character in any one of the literature analysis books you've read this year.
