Vacation Week October 2- October 13

Independent Reading Assignment due Monday, October 16 

Assignment Details:  Students who are reading The Giver will complete the Quotation Connection Assignment on that book.  Students who already have a book approved will complete the assignment on that book.  

One of the two responses for everybody is to discuss the ending of the book.  

Please refer to the model that was reviewed in class for guidance on how to earn a high grade on this assignment.  In short, students must provide specific evidence from both life (for the Quotation part) and literature (in the Connection part).  

Quoting is not required, but it is encouraged especially for the response on the end.  Specific paraphrasing is required. 

Assignments should be neatly written in ink or typed.  Please provide the text of the quotes you select.  Single spacing of this assignment is acceptable.  

Bring back your book!  Staple the rubric from the assignment sheet on top of your finished assignment.  Turn it in with the book.

7:00 pm October 18, 2017 at ASU Gammage

 Join us for a special night to explore the explosive relationship between Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr and the wider drama of America’s founding. 

Burr and Hamilton lived in the same city, worked in the same profession, occasionally worked together, had both fought in the Revolutionary War, and seemingly had cordial personal relations.  It was politics that put them on a collision course. 

Featuring acclaimed historian Nancy Isenberg, author of Fallen Founder: The Life of Aaron Burr and Hamilton scholar Peter McNamara of Arizona State University’s School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership. The discussion will be moderated by Paul Carrese the Director of the School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership.

Rare opportunity to see a first edition of The Federalist on display at ASU Gammage
