Dear Juniors,

If you missed class today, we completed the following:

1. Journal #4: Crucible: "Paying the price for her silence"
This article should have affected you! What emotions did you experience? What is your opinion regarding the young lady focused in the article? How can fear cause someone to compromise their integrity? How could she have watched the attack upon the counselor and DONE NOTHING to stop it? Why do people choose NOT TO ACT in times when ACTION is needed most? Consider your own character. Would you sit back and watch or would you act? Don't tell me that it depends on the situation. Are you a "doer" or a "watcher?" In addition, how does the concept of bullying connect to the article that you read for today. Feel free to return to your previous article to support this question. How do BOTH articles relate to events within The Crucible?

2. Students took their Act 2 Vocabulary Quiz and we corrected it.

3. Students were given the vocabulary words for Act 3

4. We started reading Act 3.

1. Remember that your "Memoir" session is set of Friday! If you haven't read your second third of your book, then you need to work on this asap.
2. Students were asked to read  up to page       in The Crucible.
