Scribe 10-25

So it was another donut day in class, and what a great day for scribing, let me tell you. Today is also the day for dodgeball, and smith may get owned by Cody Scott. It was the first presentation day for our independent study projects, and I get to tell you all about them.

-The first to go was Ashley G.She put on a solid performance with her novel, The Misanthrope. I don't know if that's how you spell it, but it looks good. Her box was nicely decorated with hearts to symbolize the gigantic like fest in the book. Inside her box, each one of her elements was in a envelope, equally as nice to the outside of the box. I do believe Ashley even threw in the word "Slutty slut" in to her presentation making it all the more better.

-Next up was Marie PA pleasant follow up to the strong starter. Reading The Kite Runner, she decorated her box to portray the theme of integrity. We learned about the main characters life, being born in Afghanistan and later moving. She also made clear the significance of blood in her story, and its connection to relationships.

-Following Marie was Scott M.Another strong performance. Scott started off with a nice blue print covered box to show the "blueprints to leadership." The box was nice but it was then followed up by a brief appearance made by Mufassa and Scar from Lion King. Scar was to symbolize people who take power by force, and Mufassa was there to show those who inherit it. It was a good thing. He even left us with a thrilling "cliffhanger ending," due to Marina's time constraints.

-Neeeext up was the Goerk, Chris G.Chris read the lovely tale of Steppenwolf. Chris' box was decorated to show the importance of Steps in Germany and how the main character believes he is a wolf from the steps. There was one word which chris used quite frequently throughout his presentation. Bourgeios. Good word. It was also one of his vocab words, meaning of or partaining to middle class. And might i add Chris looked very nice in his sweats.......again.

-A solid performance by Steph M followed Goerke's.Stephanie (sp?) read 100 Years of Solitude. Her box was lavishly decorated in gold because of the common theme of money in her book of study. Her objects included a picture of a rooster fight. Significance=a strong source of conflict in 100 yrs of tude.

-Sonny W was next to perform, and what a performance it was.Sonny chose to read Crime and Punishment. The novel takes place somewhere in Russia. To be honest i didn't quite pick up on the name. One thing that Sonny made clear is that there was a stron theroy in the novel about Ordinary and Extraordinary people, and the main character's search to discover if he himself was ordinary or extraordinary. There was even a connection made about extraordinary people being insane. His box was a heftily bronze coated cross symbolizing the indestructable beliefs held by the main character. He also had all his papers chained together for that same symbolic reason.

-Tough to follow Sonny, But Amy K did well.The box/container was compared to the suitcase carried by jean val jean (and yes i made up the spelling completely), and how he and his suitcase were inseperable. The story was set in Paris, and the word Father was important to the story. It was only used to show love for the person it was directed towards.

-Chuggin up the rear was Caitlin O. (she went last)Caitlin chose to read Anna Karenina, a book that is, and i quote her, " All about love." Her box was even decorated in red because of its strong connection with love.And that concludes my Breif Synopsis of the day's presentations.-

HW: Independent study continues on Fri. the 27th and Wednesday the 1st. Monday October 30th will be a work day , because Smith will be gone. Probabaly a good day for modernization projects. The end.
