Hello once again! Here's our progress:

Period 3--scene iii-scene v
Happy reading all you DECA people!
Today we read in Macbeth:
2nd hour-Act I scenes 1-3
3rd hour-Act I scenes 1-2
Read if you aren't caught up!
(Find text in Handouts section)
Homework for tonight:
1. Finish reading "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas"
2. Create a Venn Diagram comparing Brave New World and Omelas
3. Give me a short written response talking about the idea of Happiness vs. Freedom
To those of you who were absent for the past two days, here's what I need you to do;
-Go to the powerpoint in the handouts section entitled "Utopias and Dystopias" And copy down the seventh slide.
-Then read Harrison Bergeron and answer the question "How is this society Dystopic?" in a paragraph using the information from the slide to inform your answer.
Know it's been a while since I updated. Here you go:
-At this point I should have collected your group essays from you. If I haven't, get them to me NOW! I know working in groups leads to logistical issues so I'm willing to be lenient, but not for very long...
-Your only homework was to complete your paragraphs on which society (Dredd, Hunger Games, or Wall-E) was more dystopic and why. I will upload those videos to the handouts folder.
-Additionally, I will upload the powerpoint I played today as well. IF YOU DID NOT TAKE NOTES ON THE SLIDE I TOLD YOU TO, THEN GET THAT INFORMATION NOW! IT IS VITAL TO YOUR SUCCESS IN THE READING OF BRAVE NEW WORLD.
For those who still need the information, the complex character charts for the "Shipping News" excerpt can be found in the handouts section. Period 2, use the "Period 2 Quoyle complex character chart," and Period 3 use the "Period 3 Quoyle complex character chart."
For those of you who turned everything in to me today, no homework for you. YAY!
Otherwise, here is what I need everyone to have turned in by Monday:
-Class chart and "T-Chart" (Claim, Evidence, So What?) for the Newsroom scene.
-Postmortem of a protagonist for Quoyle (either head through arms or arms through head. If you were not assigned a series of body parts because you were absent, choose either set. Just make sure you do six.)
-The directions should specify, but just to clarify: Draw an image of a body. Then write quotes on/next to/around/in the general vicinity of the body part that provide evidence for how you would answer the questions it is asking you. For example, if you choose to do the nose, for what Quoyle smelled you might choose "he knew the flavor of brack and waterweed," as those are things that he would have smelled.
-Short reflections on the questions "How is Quoyle like a crenshaw melon" and "How do others shape our perceptions of ourselves" using the trailer for The Shipping News to support your answer.
ALL of the materials you need to complete these assignments (including the clips) will be under the handouts section. PLEASE NOTE: If you watch the Newsroom scene, there are two instances of foul language, so be aware. That being said, I'm sure you can handle it :). Enjoy the weekend!
Time for another post (know it's been a little while). Posted under the handouts tab is the chart we made today in class. MAKE SURE YOU GRAB THE RIGHT ONE! Both period 2 and period 3 are slightly different, so make sure you open the right file.
If you ever need a recap on the annotation/color coding/outlining process, Mr. Martinet has designed a powerpoint for our use. You can find it under the handouts tab should you ever need it.
Hello one and all,
Your assignment for Monday is to finish your paragraph on the "To This Day" video (posted under the handouts section, or just use you skills as a teenager and search youtube :p). The question you are trying to answer is "How do others shape our perceptions of ourselves."
Also, if you have not yet finished the To Kill a Mockingbird paragraph on "How does Atticus try to convince the jury that Tom Robinson is innocent," the ABSOLUTE LATEST you can turn it in for full credit is Monday. Also remember, I need the following pieces:
