My Favorite Greek

May 9th, 2008

Use your stellar internet research skills to find a famous Greek from ancient times that is intriguing to you.  Print out a picture (of a statue or painting), information about their achievements, and at least one famous quote and bring to school by Tuesday, May 13th.  I began with a search for “ancient Greeks” and found the people site I showed you in class.  I will try and give you a list of possible Greeks on Monday.

Choose your cause!

April 1st, 2008

Your next writing assignment is to write a persuasive essay convincing the public to “JOIN, GIVE, or DO” something. You will need to choose a cause important to you, research the issue, and write a convincing essay. Your essay should be between 500-750 words and should include a clear call to action! Here is a site called “do something . org” to help you get started. You can also choose to do something more locally focused. Post any other good research sites or ideas or questions you have here so others can help.  Try Caroline’s site “good search”  instead of mine. It’s better.
