Field Trip

OK -- Here is some field trip clarification....

WE ARE ON!!!!

Permission slips must be submitted to me by next Friday April 28.  The day of the trip we will be leaving the school in shifts starting at 7:35.  Groups will take ride on buses downtown.  The presentation of the film will begin promptly at 8:00 am.  (You may only transport yourself there if your parents have signed the front of the permission slip)

 We will be returning to Blair at 12:00 - you will still have a chance to get lunch during sixth period but you are required to sign in with your 7th period teacher.  YOU ARE NOT FREE TO JUST LEAVE AND "HANGOUT"---

Please see me if you have any questions

Here we go....

We have two units left before graduation.... yes... two.  I want all of you to seriously consider what it is you want to achieve in your final weeks of high school.  In a few short months you will be off on your own academically, the safety net removed.  Do you feel prepared?  What are some concerns?  My advise would be to address those with these last few weeks.

Our class will have a much more laid back vibe from this point on but that doesn't mean that I will change my expectations for what I know you are all capable of.  I sincerely hope you pick your lit. circle book carefully and take the time to enjoy reading the text.

Let me know if you have any questions

Slaughterhouse Five!

I was just reflecting on the conclusion of the story and the philosophy that the Tralfamadorians communicated to Billy which is

"Ignore the awful times, and concentrate on the good ones."

I imagine you are all having a pretty awful time considering the next 48 hours of struggling to get this paper done and finishing the book.  Let me help you concentrate on a good one....

I am extending the deadline of the paper for all classes until Tuesday April 4th (at 7:00 am)---

Enjoy the rest of the book!  (and make sure to read)

Reading!

For the most part you are all doing a fantastic job thus far with the text.  Our daily procedure for reviewing Catch 22 will change a bit next week with regards to reading quizzes and discussion questions.  Just keep reading and you'll do great.


I have also found some interesting opportunities for those of you still looking for some scholarship $

Catch 22

As we will start our reading of the text over the next few days I want to try to encourage persistence here.  This is a challenging text, but an important one, especially in 2017.  It is easy to give up on this right off the bat.  Stick with it, take notes, ask questions and the experience will be a rewarding one. 

The majority of the homework to come is reading for quite some time.  So make sure to read.  If you don't you will get lost rather quickly. 

ENJOY IT! (and let me know if you have any questions)

ICK

Well it should be obvious by now that I have been out for the last two days.  I've been stuck in bed with the flu and have not really had a chance to get any work done.  For that, I apologize.  I will be returning to school tomorrow and we will finish up our intro to satire unit.  Please take this opportunity to continue working on your satire projects as Catch 22 begins on Friday and with it comes some more regular homework assignments.

Let me know if you have any questions regarding the project ASAP- do not leave this assignment until the last minute.
