Post your thesis statements and ideas on this post here.

Remember, the more specific you are, the better your research.

Here’s a link to the research links found for you by Mr. Haugen: http://blog.dearbornschools.org/fhslibrary/?p=472

Here’s an important piece of advice from Mr. Haugen:

Go to library home page: http://fhs.dearborn.k12.mi.us/Library
Near top of page, just above yellow TODAY box, click on “Book (& videos) Search”

Again, best sources we have for this project will be the databases.

Use same library homepage, and then below yellow TODAY, see the Blue box “Research” section. Especially 1. Gale one file, and 4. Opposing Viewpoints.

These do not need a password in school. At home password is fordson (all lower case).
Work hard!

For those students who want to push their analytical skills, I offer you an opportunity to choose a line or section of the short story and analyze it for its deeper meaning.  Analyze it like you would if I selected it for part of the exam.

Here’s a link to the short story: http://www.calapitter.net/dead/39/scarlet_ibis.html

Commercial Analysis January 4, 2010

Posted by ammerahsaidi in Uncategorized.

Here is where you post your responses to the commercials you have viewed.  If you could put up a video link of the commercial you’ve watched, that would best help us to understand your paragraphs.

Remember you are writing two paragraphs: The first is WHAT does the commercial make you feel.  The second is HOW did the commercial influence this feeling.

Think deeply and analytically.  This is only for 1st, 2nd, and 5th hour.

**EXTENSION OPPORTUNITY FOR WILLING STUDENTS: Will students interested please write down off of their Facebook livefeed their status message and the status message of 10 friends?!**
