Fahrenheit Fishbowl 136-155 period 5
Listening to the discussions, I also had some questions relating to Fahrenheit 451:
Every week in English Nine Honors, students are given a set of ten SAT preparatory vocabulary words. Last week’s words were astute, asylum, atone, atrocity, atrophy, attrition, augment, augur, authentic, austere. They are expected to know and use these words appropriately by the end of the week. One exciting part of getting a new set of words to learn, besides of course learning new words, is our Wednesday vocabulary activity. Students have created bumper stickers, pick up lines, written letters of complaint and recommendation. However, none are as clever as when they are asked to create a country western song about Wonder Woman (yes, the lady with the golden lasso and bracelets). In their groups of four to five, after completing their fantastic composition and practicing for a few moments, the next step was for the students to record their “original” work in Audacity. After saving their recording, students were to take it home and enhance their work. Students exported the files into an MP3 format and voila! We have Wonder Woman Gone Country!
You can respond to all or pick just one...
So, what did you think about the live blogging as well as the aquarium style discussion? Remember to be specific as well as offer constructive criticism. Also, if you can think of solutions to issues please comment to those.
Reflecting back over our study of Macbeth, I want you to pose one really thought provoking and higher level thinking question. Challenge yourself to think outside the box. Becareful not to repeat others' questions.

I want you to continue the conversation for those who did not get a chance to express all of your ideas to Mr. Maas. Let him know your thoughts about laptops as well as the things we are doing in class. For those of you who did not even get the chance to talk to him, I want your voice heard as well. Please keep your comments appropriate, react and connect with others' ideas, and give constructive criticism as well.
