One of the great things about writing is that it helps you learn more about yourself. It also helps others learn more about you. Part of our work in this area will invlove an "I Am" essay which you will be working on for the rest of the term. You will base your work on the reading called Awakening Genius by Thomas Armstrong. Create a new link from your page to your I Am Essay Page. You should add a new word from Armstrong's list of qualities with two examples from your life, one school related and the other non-school related, every week. I am most concerned with where you plan on going and how you plan on getting there based on your genius to accomplish your goals.

Happy Writing! I look forward to learning more about you.
