Finish Speak and Into the Wild; End of First Quarter

9 Nov

9th Grade:

We will be finishing Speak

12th Grade:

You will get your college essays back. If you want to revise it, I can take it Tuesday.

We will finish watching Into the Wild. Remember to consider the following questions:

What is more important, following your heart at the risk of losing friends and family, or maintaining important relationships at the risk of not completely following your dreams? Do you think Chris (aka Alex) was brave and noble for leaving his world behind to follow his dreams? Or do you think he was selfish and foolish? Explain. Give examples from the movie/book and real life.
