  • 6th/7th World History HW (Thurs. Nov. 16)

    Study for Chpt 8 and 9 test. 

    Answers on the study guide should all be correct, as we have gone over them in class.  Use the study guide to study for the test.  

  • American Lit HW (Thurs. Nov 16)

    Study for Friday's test!

    In class we covered author information. Remember to review the literary movements short answer section from the last test; most of those same questions will reappear in exactly the same format. 

    Other information to study: 

    •  Elements of Romanticism in "A Republic of Prairie Dogs"
    • Main plot points of "The Tell-Tale Heart" 
    • Review questions for Ralph Waldo Emerson's Self-Reliance and overall values of Transcendentalism
    • Types of characters in "Thank You Ma'am"
    • Theme of "Theme for English B"
    • Speaker in "Midwinter Blues"
    • typical subjects found in blues music
    • Literary terminology matching: there are some terms we talked about briefly as they came up in class and I tried to compile a list. On the test this will be a matching section, so it should be fairly simple since these terms are all quite different. Make sure you know the meaning of: dialect vs. dialogue, free verse, speaker, protagonist, tone, and utopia.  
  • Phy Sci HW (Thurs. Nov. 16)

    -Take notes over pages 105-108

    -Read to page 113, up to "The Ocean"

    -Complete SN pg 60 

  • 10th World Lit and History HW (Thurs. Nov. 16)

    World Literature: 

    -read pages v-wv in your Julius Caesar  by William Shakespeare text.  Take notes.

    -Brainstorm a list of at least 10 characteristics that you think good leaders should have

    - I am attaching a study guide for the Greek Lit test.  Remember that attachments are found at the bottom of the post, under the date, in tiny font.  Please print the study guide or copy the information to have in class on Friday. 

    -Continue work on narrative; rough draft is due Friday 

     

    World History:

    - Continue working on Greek Empire/Roman Empire Powerpoint. 

    -Please watch the following video about citing pictures in a powerpoint: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syt24LJvzlY

    A few words on citing all sources using Easybib: make sure you do not just put the web address in Easybib and then do nothing else.  Easybib does not always find all the information.  It is your responsibility to go to the website and search for additional information that Easybib did not find.  Many times there is a date, title, publisher, or author that Easybib does not include in their citation. You need to fill in extra information into their template to create a more complete, correct citation. 

     -Here is another video. It is longer, but I don't need you to watch the whole thing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZJA5MVblV8

    -Watch from 3:30-.3:55. This shows an example of an in-text citation for both information AND a photo. Note that the citations for photos can be styled how you like; I know you don't want your slides to look cluttered. You can change the font and size so that it's small and looks nice. This section of the video also serves as a reminder that the in-text citation should always guide the reader/viewer to the Works Cited citation, and thus should BE the first piece of info found in the Works Cited citation. 

    -Then watch from 7:01-8:18. It is about in-text citations for photos.  You will see an example on the screen. Please note that if there is not a photographer as shown, you will use the title of the pic if you can find it, and if not, you then need to use an ABBREVIATED web address. In other words, don't use something long and tacky looking like http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/369/488/61d.jpeg, you would need to shorten it to it's most essential form--just website.com, whatever the website is. 

    -Don't forget that you also have a current event this week.
