    Quotations to Think About


    1)Copy the quote into the top portion of your Journal. 

    2)Write a thoughtful response to it in the spaces below the quotation.

    In your response you should have three parts.  Each will be a very brief paragraph:

    •  A) Explain what the quotation means in your own words.
    •  B) Agree with it or disagree with it and explain why.
    •  C) Tell what it has to do with your own life...with real examples or details.

    As always, it is your job to show what you know.  If you have other comments, additional ones or different ones that show you are thinking, those are great and are very welcome in your Journal.  You are synthesizing!

    You should use CURSIVE for your response.

    Its a great idea to discuss the quotation with another person in your family, a teacher, a school friend, or to look it up- but always write your own response.

    The most recent ASSIGNED quotations are in a green font.
