Show Your Work

Creativity is a social act for most.  Share with me what you have been writing (if you haven’t already). You can share a Google doc, e-mail me, take a picture of something hand-written and text it to me, etc.  It doesn’t matter how long or short it is or how good you deem it to be – share it.  I’ll give you feedback and we will go from there.

Reading for Monday’s discussion:  

“All the Light We Cannot See” to part 3

“The Giver” to chapter 5

Other Stuff:

  • Work on your passion project
  • Work on your First Friday project

 

Hey Kids, Monday is the Start of Banned Books Week….

Please read the first link and look over the second one. Think about what is happening today in regard to terrorism, violence, and the current crazy political landscape. Answer these questions in a conversation with  classmates:

  1. How does a book get “banned?”  Who bans it from whom?
  2. How does the historical context of a book affect the public’s reaction to it?
  3. Would a book considered objectionable in the 1960s or another decade be viewed more favorably today? Why or why not? Do the books banned in 2016 have a relationship with the current U.S. events and or politics?

People’s History Reading

I forgot to post a reading for tomorrow. It is a bit late to require you to read chapters 3, 4, and 5 (Chris’ recommendation for a good discussion) plus there is a pretty good chance we will spend most of the day moving to our new location. Let’s plan on moving the discussion to Friday and covering chapters 3, 4, and 5.
