Thank you for all that you have taught me!
Best wishes to each of you as you end one chapter of your life's book and turn the page to see what happens next. Good books are filled with adventure, happiness, loss, love, sadness and surprise. Be sure to savor every word of your life's book and learn from the lessons of each chapter. Never underestimate the value of every character who is introduced into your story. Listen to them and learn from them; especially the characters who have the most experience. As you write your story, be sure to take risks and responsibility for your actions. Be the hero of your story...not the victim. Be thankful to the characters you encounter-each has value. Make your life nothing less than a masterful, best-seller.
Hi, Almost Graduates!
Here is the link for the version of Macbeth that we are using in class. Feel free to use it at home. It is excellent!
Just go to the link and click on the Macbeth circle. Enjoy!

Class Work for Tuesday, February 28th
Take a copy of the questions for Chapters 20-27 from the back of the room. Then, answer all of the questions from chapters 20-23 in your notebooks. Be sure to cite details from the book! This will count. If you are absent, I have attached the questions to a file on this page marked, "The Good Earth."
