For Monday, finish reading the "Varsity Athlete" article. Make a list of the questions you think the writer had to have asked in order to get the information for the story. Bring the list to class on Monday. Have a good weekend!
Lit and Comp: Period3 - Everyone read an article on an individual whose actions connect to those of either Branch Rickey, Pee Wee Reese, or Jackie Robinson. Students met in small groups made of people who read different articles, and discussed the actions of the individuals they read about. We also watched a brief behind the scenes video clip of the making of the movie "Glory Road."
Period 11 - We watched two video clips showing the theme of having the courage to stand up for somone else and connected them to the stories/articles we read this week. We also had a discussion on the two sides of the new edited version of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Please respond to the "Standing up for someone" blog before class on Monday.
