I want to show you the bullet journal video for keeping organized. I know that it might not mean anything to some of you, but for those of you who want a system that many people say works really well for them, then this is the planner system for you. If you are into just keeping the basics, this system works. If you are into artsy stuff, this system still works. If you find that you want to do more research, then go to YouTube or Pinterest to see other examples of bullet journals. Feel free to ask me about mine if you need to see one in action. See below for the introduction video. 


Today we also took a practice selection test for “Where Is Here?” I know it’s been a while since we’ve read it, but the idea is for you to take a look at the questions on the test so that you aren’t surprised by the questions you are seeing when we take the graded Selection test for “Why Do Some Brains Enjoy Fear?” We need to be done with “WDSBEF?” by tomorrow so we can take our selection test on Wednesday. (We have a short day Wednesday for conferences.) Last, I want to make sure you understand that one of the projects on page 99 is very long. It requires you to watch two horror movies from the 50’s and 60’s and compare them. While the activity seems a lot more fun than the other two you get to choose from, it also takes a lot more time than the others. If you don’t have the time to devote to it, then don’t do it. We won’t have the time in the unit to wait around for you to possibly find time to get it done. 

HWMK: Make sure your group is finished with “Why Do Some Brains Enjoy Fear?” by the Selection Test on Wednesday. Get caught up on any missing work. Once we are done with Unit 1, I’m doing waiting and collecting late work.

Everyone worked on their small group activities for “Where Is Here?” Today is the last day to get those taken care of. Tomorrow we will discuss the activities as a class before we move on to  “The Dream Collector.” 

Don’t forget that you have a vocabulary quiz on Friday. The words are on Quizlet for you to study. I also put a link to Quizlet on Google Classroom for you.
