You know that sign that can mean an avid reader… looks like someone into (smelling??) a book?  I shared it with the students I interpret for, but I really need them to see a native signer doing it.

I felt led to donate to the "quadruplets" fund after their mother passed away after the babies were born.  I didn't know her but she was originally from Memphis.   My prayers are for the father, the preemie babies, and supporting family - and that the funds go to the father to help relieve some of the financial burden (the fund was set up by a friend).

Today we discussed meiosis and students worked on their cell cycle worksheet during 4th. 


1-20-15- Harris Eng. 1
Note:  J and L did not have their books!  C and M did.
Note:  J and L need to study the difference in main and subordinate clauses.
Ex:  Although yesterday was Monday, we had a holiday.
     (the above cannot stand on its own, so it is subordinate)
We came to school today because school is in session.
   (the above cannot stand alone, so it’s subordinate)
  1. Do Now:  Dr. Martin Luther King Holiday – January 20, 2015 – Discuss at least 3 things from Mr. Mizell’s presentation.
  2. As always, following journal writing Ms. Harris calls on the kids at random to have them read aloud or relate what they wrote and more importantly, why they wrote what they wrote.
  3. Pg. 539, Writer’s Choice: On a piece of paper—which you should have ready at all times anyway and have it on your desk at all times—write the definition of a “clause.”  An independent or main clause is a clause that can stand alone because it has both a subject and a predicate (verb).
  4. Note 2 independent clauses can be joined by “and.”
  5. Open lit bk. To pg. 540 and look up “degenerate.”  (This was done as Camyrn couldn’t give Harris a sentence with “degenerate” in it).
  6. She asked the class to take out their homework.
  7. We reviewed homework.  (Mario did very well on his! )
  8. The main clause = the independent clause.
  9. Subordinate clause = dependent clause.  These clauses canNOT stand alone.
  10. Subordinate clauses must be attached to a main clause for it to make sense.
  11. Ms. Harris collected homework.  She fussed at the class as some students did not turn in their homework and some did not even recall we had homework (which has been on theboard for some time).
  12. Lit. bk. Pg. 550.  Get background on Franklin Roosevelt’s speech—another persuasive speech—by studying the vocabulary first and then reading the background info.
  13. Yeah, Mario!  He advocated for himself and asked for an explanation about his low group grade.  I think he understands now.

Spanish Tuesday

Remember that all the power points can be seen on Mrs. Satar's website.

My Seniors on Senior Swag Day


Test Over Chapter 1 on Monday. Here is the Study Guide to help you study.


This weekend marks the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's life and legacy regarding civil rights in America. Many of us don't take much time to fully consider the impact of Dr. King on the Civil Rights movement over this weekend. We often times forget to consider the principles and strategies Dr. King employed to fight an unjust system. These were revolutionary strategies that took extreme courage and measured practice to bring about change. Non-violence in the face of violence was effective in bringing about change to the Jim Crow South, and we should consider these principles today when we deal with contemporary examples of injustice. 

Read the article from the Smithsonian website and respond to the following prompt. 

Prompt: Why was Dr. King's belief in Non-Violent protest effective during the Civil Rights movement? Do you think this is an appropriate response to protesting modern instances of injustice (i.e - in the case of Ferguson, MO)? 

In order to earn 50 POINTS extra credit (on any test or quiz), your response must be at least 350 words. Please submit these to coach Yarbrough's email ( by the end of school Tuesday, Jan. 20.

 For Version B Students. If you have not been told that you are a version B, this is not for you :)
 read and write a summary of the day's events (as portrayed in the article)
