Hi guys. I know that this was an "off" week for a bunch of different reasons, but let's not let it break our stride academically!!
In My Sister's Keeper, Jodi Picoult uses the metaphor of "fighting fires" to describe Brian Fitzgerald's efforts to hold his family together. This week, I'm asking you to make a text-to-self connection; what "fires" are you trying to "put out" in your own lives? What have been the effects of these "fires" on your lives? Do you think you'll be successful at fighting these "fires"?
Your comment will count as a homework assignment for the third marking period of the semester.
