Hello fellow period 2 goers! Today our class consisted of stimulating conversation with Mr. Meyer about his thoughts on technology and politics today. A few important points you may have missed:
-Is technology going to get into the way of our founding fathers' unexceptional Bill of Rights?
-What have we done and how far have we gone to make ourselves feel secure? (he used the example of the Patriot Act and exceptions to the 4th amendment to make his point)
-HOW FAR IS TOO FAR?
-THERE SEEMS TO BE NO TRUST ANYMORE
-we need to protect ourselves from LAZINESS
Each of these topics were humorously answered by Mr. Meyer and engaged the entire class. I hope you were not absent to miss it!
HOMEWORK: Read Little Brother ch.1-5 by TUESDAY (a sign up sheet for fishbowling was passed around during class), LOGGEL is due tomorrow, Grammar notes turned in and quiz tomorrow (hint: know how to label/diagram "our neighbor Tom is the next president after Obama"), and the Einstein packet will be due tomorrow.
