Hey guys this is Lauren's Scribe Post but her blogger wasn't working right so here you go...
Today, we had a discussion about the two videos, A Vision of Students Today (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGCJ46vyR9o) and Web 2.0 ... The Machine is Us/ing Us (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gmP4nk0EOE), and the writings, The Pedestrian (http://englischlehrer.de/texts/pedestrian.php) and Harrison Bergeron (http://www.tnellen.com/cybereng/harrison.html). Make sure you understand the connections to the previous books we’ve read and connections to life we talked about today.
- Make sure you turn in you banned book letter with the title of the book on it if you forgot it today.

- Read pages 1 – 40 in Fahrenheit 451 and bring higher level thinking question on sticky notes! Presenters should even more questions and facts for discussion on Monday.
- If you need to redo your Macbeth essay, I recommend redoing it at home and then go to writing lab, and if you think you need anymore help or if you are confused set up a meeting with Smith. Remember the helpful links to help you write this essay! http://arapahoe.littletonpublicschools.net/Portals/7/Language Arts/Smith/writing a comparison.doc, http://arapahoe.littletonpublicschools.net/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=kGsWxC_6HU4%3d&tabid=1924
- Also, make sure you work on your Wonder Woman song and make the presentation not like education as usual! This presentation for SAT 6 vocab is due Tuesday!
