  • What is the lecture about? (provide background and thesis)
  • Choose one significant point that you find to be interesting and why. Provide Quotes
  • Connect one point to identity and something you learned in this class ( notes, an essay we read about love, friendships, work, language etc., my lectures, a point a student made, a quote I used in class etc.)
  • Take one thing from the lecture and relate it to your own life.  (Think about destiny, emotion, internal drive and/or invisible force)




Food for Thought - If you had the chance to interview Robbins and ask him one question, what would it be?


Have a Wonderful Weekend! See you on Thursday! 


* I will try to go over these responses on Thursday. If we do not get to it, ( I am introducing the Research Paper) I will go over them the following class day. This will count as a participation grade. I will make note of it in my GRADE BOOK
