Think positive

Directions:  Read the excerpt from Laurence Gonzales article Everyday Survival and Mr. Millers response to it.  Respond to the excerpt (and my piece if youd like) in writing using text-to-text, text-to-self, and text-to-world connections. Think of it as a reflection and use it as a space to consider your own thinking as you navigate a challenging world.  Be thoughtful.

Your writing should be thorough (8-12 sentences, or more) and grammatically correct.  Ultimately, your use of concrete detail, commentary, grammar, and the writers toolbox will help you raise your grade.
