6th Hour Manzanar Scribe-Tuesday

Hello everybody!

We were all glad that Mrs. Moritz was back today.

First we discussed our semester projects. You must relate your overall theme to one poem that was presented in class and to all three books. We will have 2 days in the computer lab next week. I hope they are coming along well.

Before we started to discuss, we looked at some “Ansel Adams and Manzanar” pictures. They were pictures that had been taken in the camp. We looked for noticeable things and the perspective.

Then we hopped right into our discussion of Farwell to Manzanar. We discussed Papa’s reaction to his daughter wanting to be baptized. He was very angry. He thought that she was too young to decide what she wanted to be. We thought that she only wanted to be baptized so she could wear a pretty dress.

For homework, read the next three chapters: Ch 16, 17, & 18
No sticky notes this time.
