Happy three day weekend!

English III had journal #16. Remember that Venn Diagrams are circles and that they should be labeled with a title and then each circle should have the character’s name. Also, you need at least three specific things in the center and five on the outside. Outside should be parallel. So if you write 14 year old, brown haired girl on the left, then you describe the other character on the right in the same fashion: 15 year old red haired boy. Please note, I should not see vague answers like boy, girl, etc.

Photo finished presentations and began working on assignment 1. These are due Tuesday.
