Today's journal entry was What kinds of things are you thinking about writing about for YOUR “This I Believe” essay? Brainstorm some ideas and free-write on the one(s) that seem most promising.

I handed back review sheets for your book talk videos today.

We spent about half an hour reading examples of published "This I Believe" essays; if you've been absent, you should download all of the samples below and read at least ten of them to provide yourself with models and ideas. 

Following this, we discussed the assignment (also available below) and began brainstorming ideas.
