Quote of the day: "You can tell whether a man is clever by his answers. You can tell if a man is wise by his questions." -- Naquib Mahfouz, 1988 Nobel Prize winner in literature from Egypt

Today is 80's dress up day. Pop your collars and peg your jeans. Yeah. (this is bring back bad high school memories for Mr. Duez - graduate of the year 1988!)

Here is the link if you were out of class: Socratic Seminar Text - Which are most likely to graduate

We will annotate the text, read in class, and then come up with 2 questions as we read. Then we will have a circle to discuss.
