"Hello everyone! Hello Smith!" We listened to the announcements as usual(http://ahsdailyannouncements.blogspot.com/) and went over all the homework.
The SAT exercises and test- Friday
This I believe Essay- Wed (Have an electronic copy ready on Wed. cause we are peer editing during class)
We picked up reading Inherit the Wind(finished Act II): Summary-
The people are now being swayed towards Drummond's beliefs about Darwin. Their eyes are being opened. He is saying that people should be allowed to think, allowed to make their own opionons about things. In order to do that, they need to know both sides. When Brady went up to the witness stand and failed, they saw their beliefs shattered. Before hand people would have denied Darwin until they were blue in the face, but seeing the man they once so adored fail before their eyes allowed them to open their minds, and think for themselves. "The doubt makes or breaks your belief." -James. Drummond is doing what the people assumed he would do; he is putting the issue on trial, not Cates.
We started the quiz for Act II and will finish it tomorrow!
That's all for today!
