Taylor Projex Spying

8:32am: Hello everyone! Taylor is back in business!
Today is Free Accessment Friday, yaaay! And also today, we are doing some random projexs! 
Some people are doing projexs about drawing, others about writing, typing, using the web, making menes, and making videos! 

8:45am: Sorry everybody, was kind of in an argument situation with someone..he wasted like over 13minutes of my time..-_- Very disappointing, but I am back now. I will try to focus now..

8:50am: Okay, now time for me to spectate. So far..I just see everyone focusing on their projexs. At least it looks like they are enjoying this. Deserae looks like she is putting something interesting for her topic on the laptop she is using. And as for the others, they are all into their laptops, like really, sticking their faces into the laptop. Lol

8:54am: Ms. Burton was talking about some kind security thingy. I think she was talking about jail! 
Also I see some people taking pictures or selfies of themselves. Funny, this projex has nothing to do with pictures about themselves, but yet, people still make pictures about themselves.

9:00am: 14 minutes left and people are still try to finish their awesome projexs up..well, at least mostly the laptop computer projex people to the very left of the room.
Can not wait to see how their memes or videos turn out. Hope it is funny..not boring enough to make me fall asleep without even knowing.

9:02am: Someone started singing and dancing to something, but she stopped dancing and was still singing. Lol xD
Also, looks like Ms. Burton wants her iPads back now, so the iPad folks are getting their projexs all finished up. As for the laptop people, one of them are done so far, the others are still trying to work quickly to get it all done.

9:05am: Some girl with a limeish green sweater started to twerk, she looked funny, but also look like she was failing at it..xD lmfao.

9:11am: The class is about to end to end in 3 minutes. Everyone looks done, can not wait to see all of this on Monday! 

9:12am: Okay, time to go now everyone! Cya next time!

broken baby

Oops, HomeEc Project #EpicFail


we should create

How do you feel about school!!!????   
We are making memes. 



crissy

Sooo Today is Free Assessment Friday, how fun.
Ms. Burton calls it controlled chaos but I'm sure you can see on her twitter feed, photo albums and video rolls that it isn't really all that controlled.
First of all even though its isn't first, Ms. Burton told Taylier to create a Smore. Smores usually consist of ya know, the regular stuff.. graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate but Ms. Burton just brought Taylier a computer. I don't even think she's too sure of what she's doing. What???
Okay Ms Burton. Okay.
So Taylier is making a ... smore.
Stacy is sitting on the desk snapping pictures of people.
Coley is recording random stuff.. because that's what he was told to do.
Sabrina is tweeting stuff about Ivory applying for the ACT-
I think Coley was trying to record me sneezing or the aftermath of the sneeze, HOW ATTRACTIVE. 
Destiny just needs to give up. - SABRINA DOESN'T WANT YOU ANYMORE. AND I AM THE GODMOTHER NOT DONQUEL.
Shiloh and them are acting out something I'm not even sure of and Danny is standing there looking as lost as Waldo, ya know if we could actually see Waldo.
Stacy is taking selfies. Your selfie game is on point Stacy.
Sorry, Danny isn't lost, I asked him what he was doing and he said he was making a skit, Aren't we all Danny. 
Brittany, Donquel, and Govianna are making memes. Who doesn't like memes, they are HILARIOUS.
Delmy came to class late.
Miguel looks like he's about to go to sleep. Do something Miguel. Make something of your life.
Savannah is just doing so much for the class by listening to her music. -SARCASM-
Coley is taking a picture of Ms. Burton
I wonder what Jessicas doing, she's on the other side of Sabrina and I'm too lazy to lean over, so I guess we'll never know what Jessicas doing.
I love listening in on peoples conversations, honestly. Raynika just sounded like a dying monkey.
EWWWWWWW Taylier just sneezed all over the computer. And she bit her tongue. LOLOLOLOLOL. 
Haha Taylier, you deserve that for saying my hair looks like it was a monkey nest.
Here comes Bullet. I'm not even gonna write down anything that he says because well it's Bullet and Bullet always has some interesting stories that I don't even feel like repeating.
Ms. Burton said that Ivory is upstairs hooking up with ???  WOAH IVORY # Rude Awakening
Alright so my brain hurts because I've been eavesdropping too much and my ears have been open and my ears hurt so I'm done for the day.
Happy Friday. 
Ivory just threatened to throw a water bottle at Bullet, no surprise there.
Alright seriously I'm done this time.

Fishbowl Feedback

Ms. Burton handing out supplies, "those of you that have parents that do not love you and don't have supplies raise your hand so I can give you some."

The Scholarly Leaders will not speak up. Hurry the up dude. 
Sabrina just got a text message.

She killed her kid too, such a great mom.
We are doing a Fishbowl Discussion after looking at 4 pictures.


Alexis is going first. Woo.
Your identification can't be changed and who you are can't be changed, they need the fingerprint to get in and out of china and it distinguishes who you are. That's what Alexis said, anyone for a refute?
Here goes Nathaniel. He says that everyone is unique and basically everything about them is unique- stuff keeps falling and someone just said paranormal traytivity- lol- 
Huy the asian is refuting on the asian movie, everyone has different fingerprints and that means that they all think differently. Good Job Huy. 
Oh Sweet Baby Jesus. Sabrina said that the mother and daughter are the same people, disagreeing with what Huy said about the mother and daughter being different because of the fingerprints.
Here goes Raynika. I wish people would just SLOW DOWN FOR A SECOND
Raynika agrees with Sabrina and disagrees with Huy because the DNA is passed down, blah.
Then Kiana said something about fingerprints looking the same because they are about the same shape.
Jesus Christ, my fingers hurt.
Nathaniel is going again. Saying something about expressing the pride and pride is an American thing.
Then MS. Burton decides to say something but I didn't catch it.
Then Taylier speaks, forget it. Forget you Taylier because everything is going too fast.
Shiloh would want to jump in right now and all I caught from what he said was CHINA and MAINLAND then Savannah says MAINLAND all sarcastically then Shiloh says yeah mainland and now they are discussing something about problems. I don't know, I guess I zoned out for a second there
odina makes sense, saying that coming to America gave them better lives
savannah says that their problems will follow them no matter where they go but that the moms sent them to America to give them better lives.

Ms. Burton says that the fingerprints symbolizes individuality and that the mother and daughters are different because they are different people but they are connected to your mom because you came out of her ... womb. Lets go with that, its more appropriate.
Ms. Burton recognizes Nathaniel when he says that the girl said shes an American
Then shiloh for whatever shiloh said then it sounds like what Savannah said so I'm going to go with that.

Break time. Thank you God, you must be listening to my Prayers. Now we are switching to Savannah and Raynikas side. This is gonna take all day. Love y'all though.
Ivory is awake and Ms Burton and Ivory are going back and forth about Ivorys nap
Ms. Burton be quiet. that is what you are supposed to be doing right now. Thanks

Donquel says that the mother and daughter photo shows that they have differences and they are different but at the same time they kind of are the same person and have the same types of problems
Raynika agrees with Donquel with the similar problems thing but says that the young one in the picture is fresh looking and the other one basically looks like a monkey with all those wrinkles on her face 
Krystyn agrees Raynika and I heard her say that its the monkey ladies time to sit back and watch-
Be quiet Ms.Burton- the daughter make her own mistakes
Raynika agrees with Krystyn 
No surprise there
see I said we would be here all day 
I wonder when Savannah will Jump in.

NO MORE THOUGHTS ON THIS PICTURE
BRING ON THE ICE CREAM PICTURE 
I ALREADY HEAR DONQUEL GOING OFF
Quiet please
trying to make love equal by splitting ice cream? what ? No. he's greedy. just saying. when he splits the ice cream he probably gives himself more, like I do.

Jacob said something.
now were talking about taking a POO. and someone better stop making MS.Burton mad because she HAS TO BE QUIET PLEASE

Whoa, that ice cream picture is very complicated
god dog diggity dog the bell is about to ring. woo.

Fishbowl Feedback


Alexis speak upon image number 1: she says that she believe that your identification can't be changed no matter where you are and that the fingerprint represents how the mother got out of china.

Nathaniel believes that a finger represents someone's story. Each fingerprint is different and no one is the same and that also reflects on the story of each persons life

Huy believes that the fingerprints represents how different the mothers and the daughters and how their views are different

I shared that I disagreed with Huy because throughout the film you come to find the each daughter in some way or another are just like their mother.

Kiana shared that fingerprints in all reality don't look that different because they are all round.


Nathaniel says that image two represents the pride one has in their county.

Shiloh says the flag represents the new life each mother expected when coming to the new land. But in all reality they still had problems.

Odina says it represents the new life they want for their children and the wanting for all of their problems to go away.p. Savannah agrees with odina.

Joviana says that their problems never went away cause the same problems reflected in their mothers.

Raenika believes it represents opportunity.


Day 2 of Fishbowl Feedback:

Jacob shared that he believes that the image of the ice cream represents the sweet but cold relationship each daughter has with their mother.

Raenikka shares the fact the in the image the ice cream is/melting she says that this relates to the film because it shows how fast something can change and how fast the realign ships through out the film changed.

Jacob says that the ice cream represents the family and the chocolate chips are the daughter. He went onto to explaining it more in depth but I can't really put it into words as he did.

Odina said the ice cream was a symbol for unfairness because in the movie the daughter had to pay half for her husbands ice cream even though she didn't eat it, this shows that even though the marriage was supposed to be "fair" it's not because the wife is actually getting the short end of the stick.

Ms B's Notes

Image 1
-Alexis: "identification you cant be change, your identification cant be change"
-: Nathaniel "Everybodys story, each fingerprint is unique and none is the same, and each persons story isunique and none ofthem are the same"
-Huy: "The finger print because there's no 2 finger prints that look exactly alike, each person have a way of thinking that is not like others', even though they are mothers and daughters. This picture related to the text's detail which is the daughter disagreeing with their mothers because the mothers make they do things that the mothers think are best for them."
-Sabrina:"i think that the finger prints represent the similarity instead ofthe differences"
-Kiana:"The fingerPrint form inside the mother so they cant escape the connection that they have with their mother."


-Image 2
-Nathaniel: the picture show the American pride that the daughter's had in the movie
-Shiloh: They expect a better life than they have in China, but their life in the U.S. is truely better but they now have different problems."
-Odina, Sav: "They looked for freedom, for a better life for the children that they will eventually have."
-Krystyn:"They are trying to escape the problem that they have in China by coming to the U.S."
-Ranika: "the flag represent freedom and hope, and opportunity that they seek for their daughters as they come to America."


-Image 3:
-Quelly: They are not facing each other, so they have conflicts with each other, but they are still conncected with each other
-Ranika: "the artist purposely highlighted the skin of the younger one for a reason, showing the clear distinction, the old person is faded into the background because her view is faded away"
-Krystyn: "they are both connect, the younger one is highlighted because it's their time"
-Kiana:"I agree with the daughter"


-Image 4
-Quelly: "They are splitting stuff, even though they are a couple"
-Jacob:"The mother is cold because the ice cream is cold"
-Miguel: "Ice cream is sweet, and so is the mother"
-Ranika:"ice cream melt, it change to something else, like the relationship in the movie"
-Huy:"The mothers are like the ice cream, which melt away eventually and does not last forever"
-Jacob:"The ice cream is the whole family,the daughter being the best, is the chocolate chips"

                            We are discussing images that connect to our text
                                                       Joy Luck Club
-Joy Luck Club - Summarize
  +Joy Luck Club is about 8 women that belong to a club that is create by four Chinese women who come together once in awhile  play Mahjong with one another. The name is based one the luck that is required for the Mahjong games that they play together, and the joy that they have playing with each other to forget their pain and sufferingi in life. 8 women, 4 mothers, and 4 daughters, all have struggles in their life, each told us the story of their life, the struggles they went through.

Image 1: 
    This image represent a person's identification, who a person is. Each finger print is different, indicate that each person have a different path in life, different ways of thinking, different point of views on a same subject.
Image 2:
    This image show that the daughters are Americans, they are no longer Chinese, they are different from their mothers who were from China. They are different from their mothers so they have different way of thinking.
Image 3:
    This image is a 2 women head stuck together, one is old and one is young. This represent the daughter's and the mother's similarities, even though they are different, in a way they are similar, they are close to each other, and they are related to each other. This picture says that they are one, but they  have different paths
Image 4:
    This image represent the couple that the man and his wife who divide their expenses, based on who uses what. The ice cream is only eaten by the husband but his wife paid for it, and the husband doesn' t even know that she doesn't eat it because she can't.

Best Visual Before:
    -I picked picture 1, the finger print because there's no 2 finger prints that look exactly alike, each person have a way of thinking that is not like others', even though they are mothers and daughters. This picture related to the text's detail which is the daughter disagreeing with their mothers because the mothers make they do things that the mothers think are best for them.


Best Visual After:
   - I am still picking picture 1, because it best represent the movie.

Joy Luck Club Notes  9.17.2014

Summary 

Joy Luck Club is about 4 dufferent mother and daughter stories that led them to where they are and what made them what they are today; how they overcame obstacles in life and how overcoming them obstacles made them stronger women. The name of the Joy Luck Club came from a game that the mothers used to play together, and while they were playing the game they felt joy and forgot about all of the problems in their lives. The Luck part comes from how lucky they felt when they won the game.

1.The first image is important to the Joy Luck Club because its a fingerprint and fingerprints are used to identify people. The Joy Luck Club is about learning who you truly are and where it was you came from.

2. The second image is important because its the American Flag and in the Joy Luck Club, most of the women either moved to America or married an American man. 

3. I feel as if the third image would be symbolic because it appears to be a picture of a young asian girl and an older asian woman.  They are not facing each other. It could be a mom and daughter duo which is basically all Joy Luck Club is about.

4. The ice cream is about the couple in the movie that likes to split everything and how they got in an argument over ice cream.

Best Visual Representation ( Before )

* I believe that the best visual representation would probably be the ice cream because once you really think it through you realize that the picture is symbolizing exactly what happened in the movie. 


The Joy Luck Club

Sabrina G.
.Joy luck club is about 4 different mothers and daughter and their stories that explain what led them to be the way they are. The name the joy luck club comes from a game that the mothers used to play together, while playing the game they felt joy and forgot about all of their problems, and the luck part is the luck in winning the game.


The first image is important to the joy luck club because a fingerprint is used to identify someone and the movie is all about knowing who you are and remembering where you come from. Each mother tried to always remind their daughter about their Chinese heritage and the fact the no matter what it will be part of their identity.


The second image is important to the movie because it resembles the American dream that each mother had for themselves and for their daughters. Although they always remembered their lives in china and followed their ways, they raised their daughters in an American environment. 


The third image is important to the movies because it resembles the mother and the daughter and how similar they are to one another. The daughters no matter how much they tried to be different from their mothers, in one way or another, they all were the same. Something about their mothers lived in each one if them . 


The fourth image reflects back on a seen in the movie where Rose's mother felt uncomfortable in her own daughters house because Rose and her husband lived a fair life. They each payed half for everything bought in the home. She even payed half for ice cream she didn't eat. 

I think that image three was the best resent action of the movies

Blake part 2

CNN today: Iceland has volcanos..I always thought Iceland was just a pile of mountains and ice! Iceland is said to have the most volcanic activity since it is a massive hotspot. This volcanic activity been going on for months now..wow, looks like more and more land will be created for Iceland then! The volcano in Iceland that is doing the most activity at the moment is Le Bardabunga Volcano. Its the largest volcanic system in Iceland. This volcanic activity is sending dense nasty smells across the perimeters of Iceland..fulfer gasses.Yet again, as always, ISIS is still having wars..same with Syria and Syrian..and now Iraq is getting more involved with this war. Afganistan have been between this for 13years. Wow, and areas in their country are still standing?
A solar storm knocked out satalites for 12hours?! This is really weird..who knew the sun could shut off the Earths electronic systems way out in space. Big Data sounds like a real hard thing to keep up with, they know everything..they know whats going on for everything you do on every site. Now thats what I call "creeping".
lastly for CNN, there was these seals who was happy to get into the water.
Ms. Burton is continuing with the thing her students was doing Friday.They are now doing new groups and different things - things they did not get to get to on Friday. I dont care what they are doing..its not my buisness because im scribing.Well, nevermind, I looked at it, it looks very confusing and hard. I don"t thing I like the look of that, haha. 
Ms. Burton wants to turn on the lights because she could not see in the darkness.
Okay, now Ms. Burton is showing jesus something on the computer.
 I am not sure what, but I think it is something about how to do memes.Me and ms burton just started praying together because Otis is aggravating. 

otis , tyler, and desmond are copying someone else work because they complain they did not get it Friday. durbeth has nothing to do, even though he probably has work straight up in front of him on his desk.

 

Taylor's Notes Part 2

5:56am- Sorry everybody..the time zone on this iPad is wrong. Since it is wrong, I will be disabling myself from telling when every activity and what so ever is happening..

7:58am- Okay, well..ummm...nevermind then, looks like the time zone is just 2hours late.

8:00am- CNN: Iceland has volcanos? I always thought Iceland was just a pile of mountains and ice! Iceland is said to have the most volcanic activity since it is a massive hotspot. This volcanic activity been going on for months now..wow, looks like more and more land will be created for Iceland then! The volcano in Iceland that is doing the most activity at the moment is Le Bardabunga Volcano. Its the largest volcanic system in Iceland. This volcanic activity is sending dense nasty smells across the perimeters of Iceland.. full of gas.

8:07am- Yet again, as always, ISIS is still having wars..same with Syria and Syrian..and now Iraq is getting more involved with this war. Afganistan have been between this for 13years. Wow, and areas in their country are still standing?!
A solar storm knocked out satalites for 12hours?! When did the sun start sending out solar flares(Geomagnetic Storms)?! This is really weird..who knew the sun could shut off the Earths electronic systems way out in space.

8:10am- Big Data sounds like a real hard thing to keep up with, they know everything..they know whats going on for everything you do on every site. Now thats what I call "Stalking".
Finally for CNN, there was these seals(who I did not really pay attention to)who was happy to go into water. All I did was hear that they was so happy to go into the water that they literally jumped into it.

8:16am- Ms. Burton is continuing with the thing her students was doing yesterday. They are now doing new groups and different things - things they did not get to get to on Friday. I wonder what they are doing..I will never know? Well, nevermind, I looked at it, it looks very confusing and hard. I don't think I like the look of that, haha. 

8:20am- Ms. Burton tells this boy (I forgot his name) to turn on the lights because she could not see in the darkness. I like it better when the lights was off.. >:(
Okay, now Ms. Burton is showing Shelby something on the iPad. I am not sure what, but I think it is something about how to get the documentary back up on the screen..

8:23am- (Overheard) Some boy is copying someone else work because he complains he did not get it from Friday. (Overhears) Zachary has nothing to do, even though he probably has work straight up in his face on his desk from Friday.

8:27am- Ms. Burton yells "ROBERT, SIT". Question is, who is this Robert guy exactly? Not trying to be mean, but I just do not know Robert, or I think I do..after that, Shelby gets up and continues to show Ms. Burton things about what? I see papers, thats all, but what about?? Okay..she turned in some papers, and she got a Green Folder in return!? I need to turn in papers so I can get a free Green Folder in return too, but later..not now, heheh..

8:32am- (Overhears) I know what some group"s assignment is now..they have to write a paragraph about a Rainbow?! LOL, now how ridicules is that? Seriously, a paragraph...about a rainbow? Really, who makes a paragraph about a rainbow?! xD Lmao..

8:36am- Guy and Ms. Burton discusses the group activity they have to do..at least someone in the group behind me asked a question about their group activity..unlike some people..not saying names!

8:38am- Ms. Burton yells out "Someone giggling in a corner fooling around, and he needs to do this and that but instead, he decides to not comprehend and continues fooling around.."

8:40am- # I am really hungry, my head is starting to hurt..I should of brought some food to school, or at least a soda.

8:43am- Ms. Burton tries to attempt to record Guy and Jamel do their Group Assignment, but the recording comes out with a slight error, it sounds like a robot talking. It is like "buicbrvcniuncfoeuv8fblvf" I can not understand a word that recording has said, hahahah.

8:48am- (Oversees) I seen Shelby doing something with the iPad camera, probably taking pictures or etc,And also, Guy and his group is done with another of their Group Assignment. Let us hope they do not get the Rainbow Group Work next. Lmao, That would be funny. Ooh, so nevermind, they are making their own type of poster it seems now. 

8:51am- (Overhears and Oversees) Micheal finds a box of letters, he puts his hands in it and takes what he finds in their, but luckily, Ms. Burton comes along and stops him from stealing the poor letters. Good Job Ms. Burton!

8:54am- (Overhears) Another group has the Group Work about the describing the symbols now..they tried to configure with a shadow might mean.

8:58am- The Intercom calls in looking for someone that means nothing to me because I do not know that person. Also, Ms. Burton is searching the Web and going on Microsoft Word to adjust and fix things up properly.

9:02am- Someone got in trouble for messing around with some group for trying to finish their Group Work.

9:04am- Guy and his group got 3/4 of his Group Work done..he just has one left, I wonder what that last one could be about? 

9:05am- I am now done with Scribing around the class for today! Good Bye everyone!

Taylor Notes Of The Class Of A Better Tomorrow! :)

8:05am- Taylor Notes: Today we are gonna watch Cnn news. Also, we will be doing like 5 different things today..all within 5 minutes each..but in 15minutes?? More like 25minutes..Okay..So now we are talking about stuff from the end of the school year. We are gonna create 10 news facts? Cnn starts..Now! Something in Scottland is going on..I heard that Scotland is going to be rich? People are isolating sick people..then isolating the people they meet up with - this is useful in ways fir smallpox and the diseases in Africa. Ebola is fighting a terrorists they cant even see. Heroin is a VERY ADDICTIVE drug,,just take the drug once and you get addicted. Like 1/4 people who try heroin becomes addicted just that quickly..if I tried heroin, I bet I wouldn't get addicted.. I can control myself from addiction, unless its a video game. But just keep the thing away from me and I will stop liking it, ;) Anyways, heroin use is rising in Louisiana?!

8:14am- I am hungry. But back to Cnn, some family heard lions in Africa. Lions in Africa are going extinct though..Nice, the Africans created a lion movement tracker- but from what?? Hahah, some basketball player that I do not know pretended to be wax and when people came by, he jumped up at them, but in favour, they could also hang out with him.

8:22am- Notice: Ms. Burton prefers a post of the day.

8:32am- Ms. Burton is just talking about miscellaneous things that I do not know what she is talking about because it has nothing to do with me. Okay, so now I know what we are doing, we are looking at words and thinking of what the symbols mean. Guy and Ms. Burton are now reading passages. It doesnt look like anyone else is reading..ooh well, thats on them to get lost for if something important is going on. (Overheard): Rings is a symbol of marriage. (Overheard): They are reading The Lord Of the Rings? Ms. Burton is thinking of the right word to say with "Ring".

8:37am- Some girl who looks like a cheerleader comes in Ms. Burton lass for a Pass because they do not have a teacher..#I am glad I have a teacher instead of many, many substitutes. The students rotate for the second time. The first rotation I guess I missed out on.

Something in Scottland is going on..I heard that Scottland is going to be rich? People are isolating sick people..then isolating the people they meet up with - this is useful in ways fir smallpox and the diseases in Africa. Ebola is fighting a terrorists they can't even see. Heroin is a VERY ADDICTIVE drug,,just take the drug once and you get addicted. Like 1/4 people who try heroin becomes addicted just that quickly..if I tried heroin, I bet I wouldnt get addicted.. I can control myself from addiction, unless its a video game. But just keep the thing away from me and I will stop liking it, ;) Anyways, heroin use is rising in Louisiana?!

8:14am- I am hungry. But back to Cnn, some family heard lions in Africa. Lions in Africa are going extinct though..Nice, the Africans created a lion movement tracker- but from what?? Hahah, some basketball player that I do not know pretended to be wax and when people came by, he jumped up at them, but in favour, they could also hang out with him.

Here is a poem and questions re: Contents of Dead Man http://rmd.me/VXnt
Compare ideas within Koch's poem to those in "Contents of a Dead man's Pocket"

You want a social life, with friends
Kenneth Koch
            You want a social life, with friends,
            A passionate love life and as well
            To work hard every day. What’s true
            Is of these three you may have two
5          And two can pay you dividends
            But never may have three.
            
There isn’t enough time, my friends—
            Though dawn begins, yet midnight ends—
            To find the time to have love, work, and friends.
10        Michelangelo had feeling
            For Vittoria and the Ceiling°
            But did he go to parties at day’s end?
            
Homer° nightly went to banquets
            Wrote all day but had no lockets
15        Bright with pictures of his Girl.
            I know one who loves and parties
            And has done so since his thirties
            But writes hardly anything at all.

women suffrage

1.The audience for womensuffrage is refering to political advisors and congressmen and its trying toconvince congressman to allow women voting rights.
2. ethos- she is someone well respected because t just anyone can go talk tocongress; logos-because other states have the right to vote so it doesnt make sence for our state to have 2 different laws against voting. 
3. Kings werent usually compared to regular people often and that was the problem, the world shouldnt be like that.
4.he says 
5. she could be refering more to logos because congress was mainly made up of men not women. it makes more sence to go after logics becuase men probably didnt care about what women thought or wanted. it buils her credibility because she backs up her reasons to support her statements.
6. she has facts and reasons to support her statements therefore builds creditability.

blake p4

Delivered November 19

The passage explains about....Woman suffrage about how the history of our nation born of revolution and the rebellion against a system of government so securely entrenched in the customs and traditions of human society that in 1776 it seemed impregnable. The taxation without representation is tyranny. So they explain how the colonists won and the nation which established as a result of their victory has held unfailingly that these two fundamental principles of democratic government are not the only the spiritual source of our national existence but have have been our chief historic pride and at all times the sheet anchor of our liberties ,What the passage is really trying to tell us is that woman have there own rights to fight against the government....they say we are fighting for the things which we have always carried nearest to our hearts: for democracy, for the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own government.Second the suffrage for women already established in the United States makes women suffrage for the nation inevitable , precisely the same intuition has already taught he blindest and most 

suffrage

1. Congress is the audience in the text. The occasion is woman's suffrage. 
2. Pathos and logos because everyone is treated equally .
3.
4.
5.she could be refering more to logos because congress was mainly madeof men and women.it makes more sense to go after llogos because men probably didnt care about women though or wanted.its builds her credablity.
6.she has facts and reasoning to support her statements therefore builds creditabilty.

English II Work, Sept 1st

Work for the Week

Tuesday and Wednesday

Read and Discuss: “Thoughts on the Present State of American Affairs” from Common Sense, Thomas Paine  and  “Address to Congress on Women’s Suffrage,” Carrie Chapman Catt
TEXT DESCRIPTION: Both texts are seminal US documents. Paine’s piece states his argument for American independence, and Catt’s speech is an address to Congress in support of women’s suffrage.

TEXT FOCUS: Both texts make effective use of logos and ethos to establish and develop their central arguments.

Thursday and Friday

Read and Discuss
“Rachel Carson’s Silent  Spring,” PBS
A Fable for Tomorrow” from Silent Spring, Rachel Carson
Speech to the Second  Virginia Convention,” Patrick Henry
TEXT DESCRIPTION: Silent Spring by Rachel Carson was written to inform people of the dangers associated with the use of pesticides and other chemicals. This excerpt describes a hypothetical town impacted by excessive chemical use, provides an overview of how the use of chemicals has expanded over time, and proposes a possible course of action. Patrick Henry’s speech presents a call to action to arm the Virginia militia to fight against the British in the American Revolution.
TEXT FOCUS: As you read the excerpt, pay special attention to how Carson develops her argument and the rhetorical devices she employs to achieve her goal. Henry’s speech addresses the topic of American colonies establishing their own country separate from Britain. Consider the occasion and audience for each of these texts and the impact on the arguments, paying special attention to each author’s appeal to pathos in addition to analyzing how each author builds credibility and appeals to logic (ethos and logos).
