Hey Everyone!

We started with journal and “Night” quiz (2 questions).

1st period — We finished our new Invisibilia – it’s an NPR series about thoughts. The podcast can be found HERE. The transcript can be found HERE. Every Friday I like to have the students look at other types of texts – video, podcast, or graphic novels. Literature is more than just text or more specifically the “boring” texts that students think exist.

The viewing guide (rather listening guide) can be found here>> invisibilia-batman-part-1

 

4th- Ms. Aughey worked with us to make memes for “Night” and other issues that we are passionate about!

There is no homework over Spring Break !! BUT, if you want to do the extra credit, see yesterday’s post.
