1. Periods 3, 4, 6, and 7, meet at the MPR during your class time tomorrow for a special performance of Romeo and Juliet. Students in period 1, you may go only with the permission of your elective teacher (if you are not failing the class!) to a later showing.
2. All MAUS reading guides must be turned in by Friday to receive credit.
During class, we took a practice AP-style reading quiz related on an article related to Winter’s Bone. Please come make this up during lunch if you were absent.
Students then finished their MAUS exam essays.
You need to begin reading Winter’s Bone – students should be to page 38 by Thursday, and complete the reading/discussion guide. If you were absent and I did not assign you a question, please choose one to respond to.
Here is the document with all reading/discussion guides for the book:
Today we took our MAUS test. If you did not finish the essay portion, you’ll have some time (not the entire period) tomorrow. If you were absent, please come in to make up the exam some day during lunch, Tuesday through Thursday, of this week. (I have a meeting Friday during lunch.)
Homework for tonight was to be working on your graphic novel project – you don’t need to turn anything in tomorrow, but I don’t want you to have to rush to finish it at the last minute (it’s due May 12).
Today we watched a documentary about the problems associated with meth use. This one takes a more personal look at the cost to the individual drug user, while the one assigned for homework analyzed how it’s a problem on a wide, systemic scale.
Here’s the link if you’d like to continue watching:
2. We’ll have a test over MAUS a week from today (Monday, April 28).
3. Extra credit for the test! Go to the Holocaust Museum (admission is free, but you must get a ticket from the front desk to prove that you were there). Do this sheet, staple your ticket to it, and turn it in on the day of the test for 10 points of extra credit.
More MAUS and poems today! Here is a copy of the reading guide for chapter 3 and the homework for periods 1 and 3. (Periods 6 and 7, your homework is on yesterday’s post. Period 4, you didn’t have homework for tonight!)
As I said in class, you have almost a month to do this project, and I am really going to encourage you to work ahead. It should be a project that is a lot of fun, but I think it’s also going to be one that takes some time.
