October, Masters Inspirements


Master Class Memory:

"Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God?"
                                                                   Thomas Jefferson

Word Study-

*choose a word from any of your studies for Masters Class and do a word study on it.

Constitution Study

*This month we will be studying Article 1 Sections 1-5. Read them, learn them understand them.
*Do something to help you understand them. You can do an artistic representation, a summary in your own words. Anything that helps you to understand these Sections. Add these to your tomes, as you are starting a Constitution Study. You may want to refer to Our Constitution Rocks, a core class book.
* Choose one, and email Sister Gilbert which you would like to present in Masters Class this week. Then choose a way to come present and teach that Section. Come with a powerful presentation, a way that everyone can understand and remember what that section says, and most importantly what it means.

We will be playing a constitution game, in class.

Read We hold these truths to be self evident

     *The Law of Limits
     *The Law of Delegation

*Write an essay about one of them.

We will present them to the class and discuss them together. To help with your public speaking, practice reading your essay in front of a mirror or to an audience who will listen! I would love for you to be familiar with your essay, so you can give it with confidence and like you are speaking in front of a large audience!

Here is an online article and website to help take you step by step through the process of writing an essay. You can read the 10 essay writing tips, and then follow the steps if you would like, to help you in your essay writing.
