Journal #29 | 2.5

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., once said, “The time is always right to do what is right.” React to this quote. Consider what Dr. King is known for as far as doing what is right. In our lives, we always have opportunities to do what is right. What do you think you should be doing that is the “right thing”? Why do some people choose to do the wrong thing instead? What is the “right thing” in your life right now? How can you be sure you’re actively choosing to do more of the “right things” in your life? Explain your answers.

Then, students read independently. Students with an excused absence should read independently for 20 minutes and submit a half-page summary of their reading and reactions to their reading with an absent form attached for credit.
