Today we had 30 minuets of SSR. Then we had to answer 3 different essential questions and after that some of them were read out loud. After we read a reflective narrative on page 416 in the volume 2 book we were told to bring. then we underline several different words and phrases in each paragraph. IMG_20180306_110124487.jpg i remembered the pic this time 🙂

Today we had the standard 30 minuets of SSR, then everyone did their Macbeth presentations. Remember to make sure your presentation is over 5 minuets and under 10 and that it is in the old English style. Make sure to bring your vol 2 English workbook on Tuesday.

For the rest of the block, we worked on our Macbeth scripts. These will be due on Thursday.

Good evening, North House!! Here is what went on today in class:

Today was slightly different than our usual game plan. First, Mr. Anapol came in and talked about taking a test on naviance. It was an exam designed to help users find their strongest skills and explore possible career options. We took out laptops and finished the test, then wrote our top 3 career options on a piece of paper and handed those in.

After putting away the laptops, Edwards gave us a pep talk about how important the career test is, comparing it to the ASVAB exam that many other high school students take in order to explore military career options.

Edwards then handed the floor over to today’s guest speaker, Andrew Kleger. He gave a presentation showing the common rhetorical devices used in advertising. Some of these devices were familiar, such as ethos, pathos, logos, and mythos. However, there were some new concepts introduced in this presentation such as meta-commercials or buzzwords.

At the end of the presentation, we were assigned an optional extra credit opportunity. [More information about this extra credit assignment will be released as it becomes available.] Edwards said that if we complete the assignment, we could earn up to 10 extra credit tally marks. The details about the project are shown in the image below:

February 25, 2018 – Blog Assignment #24

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend.

I chose this recent article for my blog assignment because it really intrigued me since I’m fascinated with America’s current political climate. The current governor of Ohio, Rep. John Kasich, believes that the two-party system in American politics is ending because it has failed. The following article goes into detail about his views and thoughts on the downfall of the two-party system:

ABC News – US could be witnessing ‘end of a two-party system’: Republican governor

Do you think it’s good or bad that the two-party system is failing? Why or why not? What do you think will happen after the two-party system has ended?
