Hello All,

Choose one thing to critique this weekend (an event, a film, a meal).  Be sure to clarify your criteria, and specify how well your subject met (or failed to meet) each criterium.

Take care,

Post for Friday, September 23

Hello All,

For this post, craft a thesis statement you could use if you were writing an essay in response to the following quote:

"Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught."

--Oscar Wilde
