6th Hour Manzanar Scribe

Hello everyone!

First off, I'm sure everybody hopes that Mrs.Moritz's foot feels better and also that David's ear surgery goes well. NOTE: Mrs. Moritz will not be in class on Monday or Friday, also we will have 2 more days in the computer lab for the semester project and hopfully everyone is progressing with their projects.

Later, we got our Farewell to Manzanar books from the book room and we were to write our names in the inside cover. For our final assesment for this book we will be having a scored discussion. Mrs.Moritz then read aloud the first two chapters of Farewell to Manzanar and we talked about how Mama must have felt having to take care of 10 children while her husband had been arrested for crimes he did not commit and being Japanese when their ethnicity was the "enemy". How would it feel to be born in one country and live in another and have them both fighting and both of them disown you? We also talked about the television show "Deadliest Catch" and how it was similar to our new book. If anyone has time, I might suggest tuning into the show.

Homework: We are supposed to read Chapter 3 for tomorrow, it's very short so it won't take very long. Have a great day everyone!
