English 1, Honors: Late-start journal and reading

Today, students responded to journal #20:

“‘Take time to be deliberate; but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go in.'” –Andrew Jackson, quoting Napoleon Bonaparte; What does this quote mean to you?  What happens to us when we fail to take action and pretend everything we do is accidental?  Explain.

Then, students read independently.  If you were absent, read for 20 minutes and submit a half-page summary of your reading.
