Scribe 4/4

Scribe 4/4
Dave brought doughnuts, some shaped like hearts, because he loves us that much.
Smith passed out three blue papers to help us with the quiz on Friday and with this unit.
Smith will be gone on Friday so we must be on our best behavior for the quiz.
We will get the choice between a partner quiz or “Gates of Heaven”.
Montage Project
In a group you will make a podcast of a couple pages from chapter three with the two scenes.
Copy pages and create a script and assign parts
To create a podcast:
You need to get the microphone from Mrs. Gaffney, tell her that you are in Smith’s class, she knows you are doing this project.
NOTE: Make sure you turn on the microphone ;0)
Go into the scary editing room on the right side as you enter the library
You will need to sign up for a time on the door before doing this
Sign on to the computer and from the start menu click on “Audacity”
Record the audio of your group members reading the dialogue from your scene
NOTE: The record button is the circle, the stop button is the square
Replay your audio before saving to make sure you can hear everyone.
Save into your folder
Export as mp3 by clicking “file” and “export as mp3”
Kurt, Matt, and Scott gave a wonderful presentation of three movie clips and a discussion over chapters 1 and 2 of Brave New World.
The clips were from The Matrix, Star Wars – Attack of the Clones, and The Island
We then discussed conformity, technology, individuality, and a false sense of happiness.
We finished too late to do the group project Smith had planned so we got a chance to start chapter 3 and get into our groups for our Montage project.
Read chapters 3 and 4 in Brave New World
Study for quiz on chapters 1-4 on Friday
Socratic discussion on Monday in which Smith expects us to participate in like adults. There will be no computers.
Montage Project due Wednesday, April 11
