Week: March 30-April 3

A glance at this past week:

  1. Your Anthem essay was due March 20. Have you given me a hard copy?
  2. Check the class wiki for Animal Farm pre-reading assignments this week... George Orwell Author Background.ppt, Shooting an Elephant.doc, Summary of The Patriot Act, and read excerpt from 1984 and respond (see me for copy).
  3. Check out the Vocabulary PowerPoint with Definitions.ppt for Animal Farm and be ready to make up the quiz on Tuesday, April 7.
  4. Go to the new class collaboration wiki at Just Think! (our Think Tank!) and request access. I will then grant you access as a writer.
  5. In the Think Tank, check out the debate link to find out on which debate team you are. Debates are due at the end of this thematic unit (approximately two weeks.)
  6. Read chapters 1-2 of Animal Farm for next Tuesday, April 7.
  7. Two blog posts were due Friday evening. Click here for topics.
