Periods 6 & 7, Post 2: Your "American Dream"

Hi, everybody. Congratulations on getting through your second full week of classes, and the first few days of fall!!

Our first whole-class text for the semester, A Raisin in the Sun, by Lorraine Hansberry, deals with the theme of the "American Dream," and of "dreams deferred." What are your dreams for the future? What do you hope to accomplish with your life? What steps do you need to take to achieve these dreams?

In your comment, please make sure to include your name, and to write in complete sentences. Also, pay attention to spelling and grammar.

This will count as a homework assignment for this marking period.
