September 14

JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes "Zigzagging Through Ghostland" by The Radiators; "Jai Ho" by AR Rahman, Sukhvinder Singh, Tanvi Shah & Mahalaxmi Iyer]

Words are fickle. A word like fair, for example, can mean equitable, good (as in weather), or a get-together where people show pigs and fry Twinkies. Even seemingly straightforward phrases like "I love you" are changed by tone, volume and context. Describe a simple term or statement that could be (or was actually) misunderstood. What is your remedy-- how can you use words to make your meaning more specific?

1. Journal/return résumés
2. Vocab quiz
3. "Mind Amplifiers" (part II)

1. Literature analysis
2. Personal statement (hard copy) due Monday, 9.17
