The AMAZING scribe for 4/10 from PERIOD 2!

Welcome to the wonderful scribe (better than Period 5, whom I must add, has not scribed in TWO DAYS)!!!

Oh sorry guys, period 5 hasn't scribed yet and it's kind of close to time (another hour), so I thought I'd go ahead.

What we did in class today:
-We met Ms. Woodley who came to observe our class because she's a student wanting to be a teacher and they need TONS of hours of observation.
-Political propaganda: We placed the propaganda we brought up on our computers (either printed or on our USB) along with a blank word document. We did a gallery walk (kind of like musical chairs) where we walked around the classroom until the music stopped. The we sit at chair, review the propaganda, and write down what we thought about each piece, which piece we thought was the present and which was from the past. This was just basic reactions to the pieces. We each had a couple of minutes to react to the pieces at each computer and we did this three times. For every computer, we used a different font with our initials to show the different reactions from one person to another. Smith said to save the comments that the people left on your computer for later reference for our homework tonight (look at homework for more details).

-We finally worked on out grammer or propaganda a little bit until the bell dismissed us.

Homework:
- Group tomorrow be prepared for the quiz and discussion!
- Have the pages 69-117 read by tomrorow.
- Create poitial propaganda for 1984. What are some messages that the government is trying to portray? Include these in representations when creating the propaganda. Make it very colorful and printed if on the computer or you can colorfully draw it too. Be Creative! Due tomorrow!


So long and good luck!

I can only wonder if period 5 will scribe tonight...it would seem unlikely. This blog was posted with excellence and has maintained that strong period 2 characteristic of hard work and devotion. I was particuarly attracted to this blog because of the color. It was Plato I believe who once said, "When there is color, it is better than period 5".

I agree with all my heart. However, I'm pretty sure the quote Brian is referring to was actually from Plato's teacher and mentor, Socrates. And I'm also fairly sure that he was quoting the mighty Zeus himself.

I feel like scribing has become a large part of me. I just hope everyone will continue to use our awesome scribing might for good instead of evil.
