  1. Has anyone used Cleanth Brooks and Robert Penn Warren's Modern Rhetoric to teach writing?
  2. We are fans of CNN Student News as well. I am interested in other options for high school that are more in depth while maintaining a level of discretion (not showing piles and piles of bodies), explaining terms and institutions (CNN is doing a great job of explaining terrorist groups without fearmongering - just giving information), and avoiding giving opinion as fact. I would like a step between CNN Student and the actual news. While I send articles that I find to dd15, I don't want to turn her loose on the news until she has more experience with logic and identifying bias - although I think she has more already than many adults! lol
  3. :Angel_anim: Happy All Saints Day Eve eve!

  4. Your posts yesterday about Mom0f7 were thoughtful and warm. Wish everyone gave everyone else the benefit of the doubt when reading a post!

  5. At my mom's house this evening, she was showing me the (glossy, 4-color, dvd message included) booklet from her church (Southern Baptist mega-church). They're planning to expand (again) & their budget for the new expansion is $52 million!!!! In the back of the booklet, it talked about ways to ensure your giving by doing things like: putting off planned purchases (!!!), not retiring & instead continuing to work instead (!!!), and giving your money as soon as you get paid (!!!). It also said that they could assure you of a closer relationship with God if you learned to open your listening skills to how He was leading you to give. (They inserted a quote from 2 Corinthians that talked about all the ways to exel w/ 'give' being the main item.) I also noticed that the drawing that showed the proposed expansion had some cars in front -- a BMW, a Corvette, and a Porsche (I think). :cursing: I'm not against religion per se. However, I can't call this religion. Too many churches, imo, have sold out from being about something spiritual to being about business (and total greed). Grrrr.

     

    Totally, totally agree!

  6. Hi, Michele! I really liked your post about how our choices for clothes and hairstyle can reflect who we are. It was well-stated!

  7. Morning, Michele! Thanks for the friends request! :)
