Pocahontas in Space

All of the kids who are taking English 11 Honors next year (including me) had to go to a meeting about the summer reading program this morning.  We have to read three books over the summer, and then, when we get back to school, we'll take tests over all three of them.

In world history, we watched a video with We Didn't Start the Fire and kind of went over the historical stuff in the song.  We also reviewed for our final that's going to be on Monday.

In art, we reviewed for our final (which is also on Monday), and I worked on my scratch art.

In personal finance, we watched two DVDs.  One was about being eco-friendly and the other was about paying for transportation.  We also did a word search for extra credit.

In Spanish we started watching Avatar which only about five people in the class (including me) had never seen before.  It was pretty good, but not as great as everyone was making it out to be.  I'm not sure if we'll even be able to finish it, and I definitely get why everyone was comparing it to Pocahontas.  I kept thinking of Pocahantas the whole entire time.  It's like Pocahontas in space.  Still, it's good though.

We read Act IV of Julius Caesar in English.  Also, the state of Indiana chooses certain schools to do this test to try to improve the standardized test.  It doesn't affect the students, but helps them figure out what the standardized test (Core 40) needs.  Our school got choosen to do that this year.  Our school has two English 10 classes this semester.  One is taking a multiple choice test (my best friend's class) and one's writing an essay (my class).  Our school didn't choose this or anything, some how the state just chose out class.  My class is thrilled, I promise you.  My teacher's kind of upset because we were already rushing to get done by the end of the year, and now we're going to have to finish Julius Caesar on our own before the test (which is our final).

It was funny though because there was a frog outside the window during English today that kept croaking whenever the teacher was talking.  It was pretty hilarious.
