IMPORTANT: Begin thinking about a topic to research. We will be going to the computer lab early next week to begin exploring information. You may choose what you wish to research. Choose wisely – no state or animal reports. This is high school. Some topics to consider might be a career choice or comparison of career options, any topic from The Pearl or any story we have read, topic from your choice novel, or simply something you wish to research and learn more about. You will need to have your topic chosen by Tuesday, 11/11.
