Blog Assignment #4

Hello North House! For this week’s blog assignment I wanted to talk about villains. In the Beowulf Epic there is a section that talks about the villain of the epic, Grendel. Now any great hero is only as good as the villain. By that I mean a villain has to have certain characteristics and also do horrible things to make himself seem so evil. When the villain does that and he is brought to justice by man, then that man becomes a hero. But what characteristics makes a great villain? Does the appearance of a villain play any role in it? Does the way the villain talk make him evil, too? Now lets find the perfect villain. We will the use the famous Joker from the Batman Cinematic Movies . Which actor played the better role of the Joker? And why?

Here is a link that talks about the Jokers through out cinematic history:

Prompt: Who played the best Joker? What characteristics of the Joker’s role make him the best villain?

If you would like in depth comparison of SOME of the Joker’s then watch these videos as well: [WARNING:SOME SPOILERS]

Daly’s Class: Since we need our dosage of Carl Azuz, we watched CNN Student News. We also had to sit in our Mars’ group and did a small activity in class. Which was to creat a question for the whole class. Our Problem Statement is… How can we as members of the special UN Task Force aid and inform the population of Xlandia in reaching a consensus on a constitutional democratic government that is fair and effective?

Tuesday ~ September 13, 2016

  1. Game Plan
    • SSR
    • Harkness
      • In harkness, everyone had a chance to speak. It was a great discussion and everyone had a chance to talk. Some of our classmates came up with very interesting questions or comments.
  2. Mrs. Edwards introduced us to a new vocabulary: Petrichor. Which means a pleasant smell that frequently accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather.

HW: Blog Assignment due Thursday @ 9pm

  1. Mrs Edwards’ Class:
    • We started with the usual, 20 minutes of SSR. After we finished reading for 20 minutes, Mrs. Edwards gave each person a card from a deck. Next, Mrs. Edwards asked Mrs. Hernandez to choose red or black. Mrs. Hernandez chose red, the people with a red card had to go first in the harkness discussion. There was still time left, so the other group that did not go at first were going next.
  2. Mr. Holt’s Class:
    • We talked more about Astronomy and had more definitions given to us. We also had a practice quiz. Team Belexis won.

Okay North House, we are doing good so far with spirit week. Of course, even without asking Mr. Piggot our class won. Its a given. Lets try our best tomorrow. Wear red, white and gold! Or at least two of these three colors.
