COMPASS IS ALWAYS A GREAT GO TO!!! The cadets goal for this six weeks is to be at 80% progress. If you do not have Internet access, I know some cadets find a way to get to the Library so that may be an option! (:

Well, kiddos…you’ve either just completed or are about to complete a properly major speech that you had to write and had to prepare visual aids for. What I’d like you to do is write a short reflective essay of 2 pages where you discuss how you prepared and practiced for this speech. Please be honest with yourself: did you do the best you could? How could you have done better? How could you have practiced more effectively?

On Schoology, you should see a folder for “Lesson 5: The Silver Screen” under Unit 4. Complete activities 4.05a-c and 4.05d before returning to school on Thursday.

On Schoology, I’ve uploaded a folder in Unit 8 for our research unit. The first folder in that has the e-Learning. In short, I’m asking you to read Foucault’s “Panopticism,” take careful annotations, and answer the questions I’ve asked you. There’s a folder for you to upload your annotations and answers on Thursday.

Please begin reading Death of a Salesman, which is located in the Drama folder. (Plays are actually really short reads…outside of Shakespeare, most only take about an hour to read. Think about it, most are about 2 hours long, and you should be reading twice as fast in your head as you do aloud. You could easily have this done in an hour if you apply yourself.)

In addition, please complete the reading and short writing activity I’ve left in your “flu e-Learning” folder.
