    All former students, don't forget I want a pennant of where you end up going to college.  This is how I will decorate my room.  I should be getting the first of the pennants this upcoming school year.  I am very excited.  
    A quick note before you navigate to the page on the website you logged on to see.This year we are all about finding evidence.  (Almost) all answers can be found in the text.  Its not always directed stated.  But using inferencing skills, you can put together evidence.  When we see evidence, whether its in Language Arts or Social Studies, we need to site that evidence.  Does showing the evidence through examples take more time?  Yes it does.  However, isn't it worth it if it means getting the right answer?  You better believe it.  So do you HAVE to provide evidence and examples in class?  As The Who once sang, "You better, you better, you bet!"
