Today was the final day to work in the computer lab on your final project. At the end of the hour everyone had to .pdf what they had and e-mail that file to me. I will try to have those graded by Thursday.

Wednesday and Thursday we will spend some time talking about photojournalism and broadcast journalism.

The final will be the riveting journalism movie “Shattered Glass.” It is just about 90 minutes, and I will begin it during passing time the day of finals, so if you don’t get here right away you may miss the first few minutes, but that will allow us to get through the entire movie in the allotted time.

Today we finished watching the News War video. If you were absent today you’ll need to come in and make up the video after school on Wednesday or arrange another time to watch the rest of the video. Tomorrow we will begin our design unit.

Today we started with SSR and then we finished the movie for those who had not yet finished.

After that I went over a PowerPoint about 8 commonly misspelled words.

I then had you fill out a worksheet practicing which spelling was correct.

Reminder: Today is the final day I will accept Kleenex for extra credit, and the last day to make up any missing OMAM reading checks.

Today we finished viewing the movie and then I handed out a packet about the essay that you’ll be typing about To Kill a Mockingbird. Tomorrow after SSR we will spend the day working on the graphic organizer and you will type your essay next week.

Today we started by going to the library to renew our SSR books. After the library we continued watching the movie, which we should finish tomorrow. Next we will begin work on the To Kill a Mockingbird essay and then you will complete those by the middle of next week. After that we will focus on our book talks and book reports in class.
