  2. Share with class. Did anyone list something that no one else thought of? Quick slide-share of Chicago sights.
  3. Those who needed to take the openbook multiple choice test on the two stories “Everyday Use” and “The First Seven Years” do so while others work on the next assignment, which is…
  4. Students will pick an index card. Each index card has a line from “Chicago”, the poem by Carl Sandburg.  Students will illustrate the line and include the exact line from the poem on their illustration. Have ready by tomorrow.
