Week 4

Welcome back to the blog,

Come to Open House Thursday Night from 5:30-8:00!

For those of you who are new to this blog Welcome Aboard! This is the place where I provide weekly updates about our activities, helpful hints and sometimes exclusive, blog-only information that I only share with my favorite people. (Like anyone who reads my blog.)

But as you can see from the poll on the right, it is also a place where I can gather a little information and also provide links to things mentioned in class. At the bottom of each post is the words comments. If you click on the word comments you can write me a note. Please include your name and remember that I can choose to publish your comment or not (insert evil laugh here.)

Many of my students have been out this week. We were missing a whopping 13 people from 6th period on Monday! If you are one of the many absentees checking this blog is highly recommended, so thank you for doing so. Things to catch up on are....
  • The Crucible Act II --Read it
  • Also read act III if you'll be out through Friday
  • Turn in Essay #1 (The assignment sheet and rubric are in your weblocker.) It was due Tuesday 10/2
  • Check your weblocker for the info on our upcoming News Project.
On Tuesday this week we watched the Act I part of the film and compared the way the story is presented there to the way it is presented in the play. (Students from last year said having the visuals from the film helped them to comprehend the rest of the play as we read it.) If you missed the film I recommend renting it and watching it on your own.

See you soon.
