Tomorrow is midterm!  Make sure you have given my any late work!  Put work on the basket on my desk.

Warm-up: What class did you register for yesterday that you are excited to take?

So today you will be working with a partner.  If you want to work in a group of 3 that is OK.  Look at the PowerPoint on the second paragraph of the creed.   When you are ready, pass off the paragraph to your partner  by filling in the words to the last slide.  When you have passed off paragraph 2 then move on to the next paragraph PowerPoint and then pass it off.  Do all of them if you can.  I will ask you tomorrow what paragraphs you passed off and put it your grade.
