Extra credit assignment (ONLY FOR THOSE who handed in the note).

Part I

The other day we discussed our “Master Goals.” In this essay I would like you to consider YOUR goal: why you selected it; how you plan on attaining it, and what you are doing NOW to make it happen.

YOU MUST BE ULTRA-SPECIFIC: if you want to be a doctor, explain what KIND (epidemiologist? otolaryngologist? internist?) and WHY. If you see yourself in the NBA—what position?

This essay is to be at least TEN solid paragraphs, include TEN SAT vocabulary terms (highlighted—as usual) an introduction, eight body paragraphs and a conclusion.

*The paragraphs MUST be NUMBERED
*VOCABULARY highlighted  

Part II

I would like you to consider what you hope your life will be like in 15 years: Will you be a millionaire?—a billionaire? Will you have discovered the cure for AIDS? Will you be in love and married?

After you’ve thought about this for a while, I would like you to review the vocabulary section of your notebook and select ONE word that represents your future.

I would like you to create a vocabulary illustration based on that word.

Include the following elements:

Full color
Word defined

Word used in a sentence
