HW10 due 1/21: The Alchemist

1. The Alchemist–Read and annotate up to page 25.
2. Satire/Parody Project–Monday, Jan. 27th. Remember this is your term final, so treat it as such.
3. (10G) Continue with our Build a Paragraph exercise… This weekend you should add at least two sentences of analysis/insight to your paragraph. Keep in mind your topic and evidence (from class).  I will ask that you share these with the class via our new electronic gizmo…you will see.

And now, some deep thoughts for those of you who I know will read this just because you exude uber epicness and awesomeness (I am looking at you Stefan, Maya, Elam, Ash, Rachael, Ivette, Gavin, Shamar–even though you will pretend you didn’t read this and instead looked at some PSAL schedule or something, and others…):

“Children need encouragement. So if a kid gets an answer right, tell him it was a lucky guess. That way, he develops a good, lucky feeling.”

“When you’re riding in a time machine way far into the future, don’t stick your elbow out the window, or it’ll turn into a fossil.”

“Whenever you read a good book, it’s like the author is right there, in the room, talking to you, which is why I don’t like to read good books.”

“Dad always thought laughter was the best medicine, which I guess is why several of us died of tuberculosis.”
