Period 3 Class Scribe

Today is September 11, 2012, the 11the anniversary of the terrorist attacks mainly on the Twin Towers.

Below is a link to today's agenda                    https://docs.google.com/a/lpsk12.org/presentation/pubid=1ThuyFhV9QLWSK_22n10U7cNyJD0D4Fp44taMvA7fTE&start=false&loop=false&delayms=3000#slide=id.g1c35b9bc_2_0

Today in class we...

  • Split into groups of three or four based on what short story we read(The Interlopers or The Open Window) and discussed our annotations and questions.
  • Subsequently had a class discussion about how the short stories were a motivator for social change, the morals of the stories, and our opinions of them.
    • The Open Window
      • We come across "widows" of opportunity and if we wait too long we will lose our chance
      • We tend to give trust easily to characters until we are proven otherwise
          • This is why we believed the girl's story even though it seemed incredible
    • The Interlopers
      • The worst can bring out the best in us
      • Fate determines what we do 
  • Were handed back SAT tests and exercises 
  • Watched the music video for "Smells like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana
  • Had relatively quiet work time to do
    • our memoir
    • SAT work


  • Memoir 2 DUE TOMORROW!
  • SAT exercises DUE FRIDAY
