Movie Opportunity on Wednesday at The Moxie

The Moxie has offered us a private showing of the documentary “I am Not Your Negro” written by James Baldwin.  This documentary has received high praise and we urge you to go.

James Baldwin was an American novelist, essayist, playwright, poet, and social critic. His writings and work are important and moving. At some point in your high school career at u.school we will discuss James Baldwin so this would be a good insight into his life and allow you to think deeper about his work.

The showing is this Wednesday at 1:00.  The cost is $8 per person.  The documentary is rated PG-13.  Please sign up here if you wish to go: Movie sign-up.

Parents are welcome to come as well.

Assignment from S. Frye, Due 1/13

Students,

Think about these questions deeply – talk to your parents and friends about them before you answer or do some research if you need to.  E-mail your answers back to me by Friday the 13th. Answering these questions is a required task for 2nd semester.
1. What are you going to learn?
2. How are you going to learn it?
3. How are you going to show me you are learning?
I know this is open-ended and will be hard for some of you, but go for it anyway.  I am not looking for answers like “I’m going to learn what you teach me.”
I’m looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!
Sandy
