Your Turn Work by yourself, with a partner, or with a group of three. Choose one of the "One-Month Miracles" below and create a plan for how you will make it happen. Your plan could be serious or ridiculous or anything in between. Afterward, present your idea to other students or the whole class and lead a discussion of your plan.
