Cores 1+4:

  1. Blog-on: How would you describe the act of creation? (What goes through your head when you are creating something? How do you know when you have created something?)
  2. Turn in your Harrison Bergeron Google Doc: What did you learn through this process? (Have someone read your reflection paragraph.)
  3. So far we have taken a look at a utopia/dystopia that sets restrictive limits upon its citizens. What would happen if we took a look at a story that revolves around creation?
  4. Extension:
    • If you had a machine that could create anything, would you use it? Why or why not?

Core 2:

  1. Rev-It-On
  2. What happens when people rip-off your social action plan? Is this what we want, or is it going too far?
  3. Work on your Social Action Plan for finalizing.
  4. Extensions:
    • Finish your SAP for Thursday.

Core 3:

  1. Blog-on: What is it about someone’s writing that makes it distinct from another’s writing (what makes it unique)?
  2. Style search:
    • Your next Academy Authentic will not be published to your blog, nor will it be shared with anyone. It will be used as a way to see how well each of you are able to spot a writer’s style. You will write up your next Academy Authentic using Google Docs and then you will export it as a Word File, sending it to me via e-mail (or you can write the whole thing in word if you prefer). I will print them out and we will see who can match the style to the author the best.
    • Of course, you will have to read one another’s blogs in order to establish what kind of style you are looking for, but that will all be a part of the process.
      • Today: Write your own piece. It must be at least a paragraph, but it can be longer.
      • Tomorrow: Research your fellow students’ blogs for hints as to their style
      • Thursday: Turn your piece in before school so that I can print them out and we can see who knows style the best. There will be a prize for the most right answers. (Plus, I will be participating too.)
  3. Extension:
    • Finish your Academy Authentic for Thursday.
