Today we will be writing and discussing people we admire.  Remember as we do this not to pick people just because they are famous in pop culture--you want to select people who embody the characteristics you would like to have one day. 

Once we have explored our own aspirations and goals, we will head to the library to begin our Independent Reading: Life Studies project.  We will each select a memoir, autobiography, or biography of our choosing.  You should have this book read by November 12, 2012.  You will have time in class to read your books (15 minutes twice a week).

If you did not get your book today, or are choosing a book that is not in teh school library, make sure that you obtain your book by next Monday, October 22, 2012.
