A Thought…
     “Do not confine
      your children
       to your own
      learning, for
     they were born
        in another
      -Hebrew Proverb
Another Thought…
      “The teacher, if indeed
      wise, does not bid you to
         enter the house of
         her/his wisdom, but
           leads you to the
        threshold of your own
      mind.”     –Kahlil Gibran-Lebanese
               poet, (1883-1931)
   Students who can
 function in real-world
   situations that are
authentic, predictable,
unpredictable and vital.

    A chef has flown from Scotland to Italy to create the world's most expensive
    pizza for a St Valentine's Day meal. Award-winning Glasgow restaurateur
    Domenico Crolla will prepare the £2,150 (3,000-euro) feast for lawyer Maurizio
    Morelli and his wife Sabrina in Rome. Mr Morelli, a gastro-expert, bought the
    pizza during a charity auction. The treat named the Pizza Royale 007 is topped
    with edible gold, lobster marinated in the finest cognac and champagne-soaked
    caviar. Other toppings on the organic base, spread with a sunblush tomato sauce,
    include Scottish smoked salmon and medallions of venison.

    Mr. Crolla said: "This is the perfect romantic Valentine's gift. "We Italians are
    experts at amore and I think this pizza will show that the way to a woman's
    heart is definitely through her stomach." The pizza was created to raise funds
    for The Fred Hollows Foundation, which aims to prevent curable blindness in
    developing countries. The title for world's most expensive pizza was previously
    held by a £100 white truffle, mushroom and fontina cheese pizza at Gordon
    Ramsay's Maze restaurant in London.

   Types of Writing
• Descriptive
• Expository
• Narrative
• Argumentative or
                   Types of Writing

• 1) Narrative: the purpose of a narrative writing is to tell a
  story. Narrative writings are told from a particular point of view,
  make and support a point, are filled with detail, uses vivid
  vocabulary, use conflict and sequence as does any story and may
  use dialogue.

• 2) Descriptive: in a descriptive writing, the purpose is to
  produce a mood or a dominant impression of a person, place, or
  object. The writer tries to make the reader see, hear, or feel
  what the writer saw, heard, or felt.
• 3) Expository: the purpose of the expository writing is to inform,
  clarify, define, explain, or analyze. To accomplish that, the writing
  is best developed by the use of facts and statistical information,
  cause and effect relationships, or examples. The writing should
  include: topic sentence, supporting sentences that make the topic
  understandable and interesting, transitions that create a logical
  order and a conclusion to tie everything together.

• 4) Argumentative or Persuasive: an argumentative or persuasive
  writing attempts to convince, bring about an event, or move the
  reader to action. In an orderly way the writer analyzes a problem,
  offers a solution, acknowledges opposing solutions, and restates
  the one given in the essay. The appeal to the reader may be
  strictly logical or it may involve the reader's emotions. To
  accomplish this, the writer must develop a limited topic, which is
  well defined and debatable. The topic should be a statement of
  position. That position must be clear and direct. Then state the
  reasons that you have to support your position. Uses specific
  evidence, examples, and statistics to persuade the reader that the
  stated position is a valid one. To finish it is important to clearly
  redefine the topic and restate the most compelling evidence.
  Remember, this is the last chance to remind the reader and
  convince her/him to accept the writer's position.
