Homework on Friday......Yes!!

Finish your one pagers if you did not finish in class!! Make it "pretty."

One pager:  Illustrate your favorite scene from your favorite story on courageous characters that we have learned about so far.  Provide a quote that goes along with your illustration.

My example was of Sojourner Truth's speech "Ain't I a Woman?"

I drew Sojourner on the stage with people in the audience and my quotes were.....

"The white men will be in a fix pretty soon."
"And ain't I a woman?"
