Scribe 2/13/15

We talked a little bit about the paper today. 
Mrs. Smith emphasized that this was our paper and we should decide what we should do. She has posted the next three weeks online so you can take a head start during the three day weekend. Or if you need a mental health break, take a rest and recharge.

We also took the grammar quiz and passed in our grammar sentences.

We also had a fishbowl on chapter 18-the end.

We talked about the ending and what the torture methods they used. Which was worse and why?
We discussed connections in Fahrenheit 451, 1984, and Little Brother. How they acted. Montag and Winston waited and hid almost. On the other hand Marcus fought back and wouldn’t go into hiding with Masha. What makes the difference?
One point was that since systems are not perfect, how would other government positions and programs would be affected? Would others be affected?
Why did Marcus still get charged with stealing the phone? It’s really small especially compared to other things he’s been through.
How have Marcus’s motives changed from the beginning of the book? At first it seemed he was focused on getting Daryl out, so what changed?
What happened to the two other kids that helped Marcus? Did they get in trouble? Did they get overlooked?

Those were just a few questions form the fishbowl to keep in mind.
