Class Time: Energy is low because today is Friday, and it’s fifth block- which means only one more hour until we are allowed to leave for the weekend. We start the class with the traditional greetings and then segue right into reviewing our homework(see below). Mrs. Smith collects the SAT work for Lesson 2 (exercises I-V), and we take the Lesson 2 SAT test. Afterwards, we look up the lyrics of “Wake Up” by Rage Against the Machine and watch the music video. The links to both are below.
The band is very much about informing the public about the reality of government and begging the public to “wake up” and make a difference in the world. This is a great example of how music motivates social change. The rest of the class period was devoted to completion of homework.
Homework: Research Roald Dahl, read and annotate his short story “Lamb to Slaughter”. Don’t forget to write 3 higher level thinking questions for discussion on Monday. Memoir 3 is also due Monday.
Side Notes for the Class: Don’t forget to ask for the extra credit question at the end of the quiz. Only one person can ask for the extra credit, otherwise Mrs. Smith takes the opportunity away.
