    Cramfest the morning of December 3rd (PLC morning). Cramfest is a study session for finals for freshmen to come and learn about finals, the final's week schedule, and more. We will have donuts.

Today we watched Honest Poem: by Rudy Francisco
  • We watched it once through listening to the words
    • Notice all literature elements
    • Metaphor
    • Hyperbole
    • Juxtaposition
    • Etc
  • We watched it a second time paying more attention to his performance
    • Loud and soft
    • Fast and slow
    • It sounds like he's speaking personally
    • Smooth and memorized
    • Hand motions when appropriate
    • He has mood in his tone
We talked about the Scopes Trial- Very basic info:
  • Scopes was teaching evolution
  • Evolution was banned
  • There was anger between evolution and creationism
  • A trial ensued over convicting Scopes or not
  • More information
We read to page 30 in Inherit the Wind
