October 1, 2013: What's Happening in English 10

1. First hour's responses to the clip of The Matrix. Go here for some strong responses.
2. The Taliban's impact on Afghanistan: View this clip and make at least 5 connections to what Amir sees and learns about the Taliban in Kite Runner.
3. Reminders for Today's Fish Bowl Discussion:
  • Everyone should have his or her Kite Runner book and annotations out. This applies to both the outer and inner circles. 
  • Reference the text frequently, reading passages aloud and giving people time to find the right page numbers.  
  • All participants in the outer circle should include at least one quotation in their blogs to receive full credit. 
  • Outer circle participants must participate on the blog throughout the entire discussion; you should not disappear for large periods of time.
  • If you haven't read, you should not participate in fishbowl. Instead, use this time to read and post on the blog tonight for homework.
  • Group Leaders: Please turn in your syllabus.
Period 3 Fish Bowl
Period 6 Fish Bowl
  • Index cards for Lesson 5 are due tomorrow
  • Read and annotate Chapter 21 for Thursday and prepare for Fish Bowl #6
