JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "Someday We'll All Be Free" by Alicia Keys; "America the Beautiful" by Frank Sinatra; "United" by Aretha Franklin]
Yesterday the United States of America elected a president. What about this experience is uniquely American? Make at least three connections between our course of study and the broader experience of participating and living in this culture.
1. Journal/collect essays
2. Test on "Legend of Sleepy Hollow"
3. A note about literature analyses
1. Find the best video of "Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and comment to this post with a link
2. Watch "Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and compare the experience to reading the story in a post to your blog entitled, "the medium is the message"
3. Use the video and the text to redo today's test so it's perfect
