February 1*

JOURNAL TOPIC: (today's tunes: "The Old Account Was Settled Long Ago" by Johnny Cash; "Well Respected Man" by The Kinks; "Accountancy Shanty" by Monty Python)

According to the American Heritage Dictionary, the word accountable (adj.) means, "Answerable; responsible." Contrary to popular belief, we do not hold others accountable-- we ARE accountable (or not). So, write a performative utterance in which you describe how you will use today's time to pursue your goals in this course and the world at large. Specifically, address how you are incorporating Big Questions, Collaborative Working Groups, independent study, your SMART goals, and the core academic assignments (lit terms, Dickens, etc.).

1. Journal
2. Vocab quiz
3. 35 minutes you will never have back

1. Post a description of how you used today's time (title: THE TIME OF MY LIFE)
2. Read pp.71-90 in Fahrenheit 451
3. Start an online discussion with at least 5 peers (platform up to you) and document the experience on your blog (title: A CONVERSATION WITH PEOPLE WHO AREN'T HERE)
