6th Hour Friday's Blog

Hey Everybody!
I am sorry that I can't be with you there today. I am home with 2 sick kids and they both have Dr.'s appointments this morning. Hopefully everyone will be feeling better soon.
I think I had Caitlin and Kaytlin backwards in my planning calendar. So I am expecting Kaytlin to blog today. Is this right? Please don't forget to do the survey and remember...your papers are due on Monday.
I am hoping to be live blogging tomorrow during your class period. As soon as I log in, I will post. If you have any questions regarding your semester projects, or your papers due on Monday, we can blog during class tomorrow. Talk to you tomorrow.


  • Hey Everyone!

    I hope you've had a great day. I'm hanging in was a really rough night. Shane--if you have your t-shirt design, take it to Mrs. Smith right now. Does anyone have questions?

  • What are we supposed to be talking about in our presentations? I know we are supposed to talk about the books and their plots, but what else?

  • I have a question. I am still not totally clear on what the "real life" examples need to be. Could somebody please clarify that for me? Thanks!

  • I was just wondering if today was our last day to work in the computer lab... will we have time after Farewell to Manzanar?

  • Hi, Mrs. Moritz!

    Hey... our t-shirt design (mine, Emma's, Sarah's, Chelley's)... should we turn THAT in to Mrs. Smith? Because we definitely haven't turned it in. Aaaah. (My scanner broke last night and I figured I'd just turn it in to you today, but no.)

    So. Ack. Advice?

  • I had a question, I wrote my essay last night, ya I was really bored, and it doesnt seem as serious as I thought. Could I email it to you and you could look over it?
    ok well I hope your kids feel better,

  • Sarah--You need to talk about the ideas that each author presents and what they say about human beings...our emotions, lack there of, what we are made of, etc.

    Sally--A real life example could be a couple who are in love and marry against their parent's wishes. There was a news story a couple of months ago about a young couple in Utah, whose parents were completely against the marriage. As a matter of fact, the bride's parents "kidnapped" the bride so that she wouldn't marry the guy. There are lots of ideas of how our reality was fiction in 1984. Just think about it and it will come to you.

    Liz- I think we have 2 days on May. I'll double check and let you know.

  • Laura-- Do you have the exact design you want printed on the shirt? If so, give it to Smith, she'll bring it to me. If not, we'll deal with it on Monday.
    Did this end up falling on you completely. If so, that's NOT FAIR!!!

    By Blogger mmoritz, at 12:30 PM  

  • Natalie-

    Absolutely, send it right now to I will take a look and email you before Sunday.

    By Blogger mmoritz, at 12:31 PM  

  • Oh no, no, no- Emma and I have been trading off holding on to the design, and I just volunteered to scan it because I had a scanner. And right, like I said, it failed.

    I'll get it to Smith. Can I just turn it in to her at the English offices after school?

    By Blogger laura h., at 12:32 PM  

  • I also had a question about the real life events. How many do we have to have?

    By Blogger NatalieJ, at 12:38 PM  

  • Laura--

    Yes, Smith will take it right after school. Can you check to make sure Shane knows he needs to do the same.

    We have 2 days in May in the lab.

    By Blogger mmoritz, at 12:38 PM  

  • Natalie--

    As many as you can find for each piece of literature. At the very least, one per piece.

    By Blogger mmoritz, at 12:39 PM  

  • Do we need to have the examples for our social issue books as well as the books we read in class?

    By Blogger sVanDenover, at 12:42 PM  

  • How long does it need to be?

    By Blogger Sarah E., at 12:48 PM  

  • This is Kaytie. Hey Mrs. Moritz I just sent my scribe to through email and I was just wondering if you got it?

    By Blogger sVanDenover, at 12:49 PM  

  • Sally--

    You already have the research done for your "real world" info on your social issues paper. This should be the easiest one to connect.


    The presentation should be between 8-10 minutes.

    By Blogger mmoritz, at 12:54 PM  

  • Kaytie--

    I don't have it yet.

    By Blogger mmoritz, at 12:57 PM  

  • Did you get Kaytie's scribe? I sent it through my e-mail.

    By Blogger JoanneH, at 1:06 PM  

  • Still don't have Kaytie's scribe.

    By Blogger mmoritz, at 1:09 PM  

  • This is Kaytie's scribe:
    (wish I'd have thought of this before!)

    Hey Everybody! How was your Friday?

    Yesterday there was a little confusion with the blogging, Caitlin Lewis and I had to switch our blogging days due to a change of plans. Mrs. Moritz was gone today and we had a substitute by the name of Mrs. Mason. At the beginning of class if there was a problem with your grade, you turned in your printed copy of your grade sheet and turned it into the sub so that Mrs. Moritz could review the problem. Today wasn't that much different than yesterday, we worked in the same computer lab working on our semester long projects. The only thing that was different about today was that Mrs. Moritz was live blogging answering our questions. We only have two more opportunities to work as a class on the semester long projects.

    Oh! Make sure that you don't forget about the final assessment paper for 1984 that is due on Monday along with our books! For the paper topics you can look at Shane's blog from two days ago.

    Have a GREAT weekend everyone! See you on Monday!

  • I now have 5 copies of Kaytie's scribe. :)

    David just woke up and is not a happy camper, so I have to sign off soon. Any more questions?
