For Friday Oct. 27th
- Do your own research and learn about the author of “The Alchemist” Paulo Coelho.
- Read the introduction, prologue and pages 1-21 (or the * break that begins with “I’m the King of Salem, the old man had said.”)
Please read chapters 21 and 22 in Evolution for Everyone by Tuesday.
A British enthusiasm for feeding birds may have caused UK great tits to have evolved longer beaks than their European counterparts, according to new research.
The findings, published in Science, identify for the first time the genetic differences between UK and Dutch great tits which researchers were then able to link to longer beaks in UK birds.
Using genetic and historical data, the research team also found that the differences in beak length had occurred within a relatively short time frame. This led them to speculate that there may be a link with the relatively recent practice of putting out food for garden birds.
This is a test to see if the email program is sending blog posts again. You can ignore it or you can use it as a reminder that your teachers do really work all night long trying to make the world a better place for you. Really. They do. Really.
Now that we have finished the book, it is time for you to leave your evidence of learning on your blog/portfolio. You can do that in any way you wish, but here are some traditional essay topics that would work:
Themes: suicide, cultural differences, bullying, time, point-of-views – Ruth, Nao, etc.., structure of writing, relationships
Symbolism: jungle crow, Haruki secret French diary and letters, internet, Buddhist Temple, Tokyo, Island of Desolation in Canada
