*studied non fiction "A New Perspective" and "Bread" and analyzed the format of a personal essay

Whew!! It's been a packed week and you've done really well. I am collecting your personal response on perspectives and your questions on "A New Perspective" today. You are finishing your work with "Identities" and whatever you can't complete becomes homework over the weekend.
We start our play "All My Sons" by Arthur Miller next week.
