Smith Period 3 (January 20, 2012)

    Hey guys! Happy Friday! We started with the usual "Hello Class" "Hello Smith" greeting, however ours was a little better and enthusiastic than it has been the past few days. After that we did our weekly grammar test and also handed in the grammar sheet (the piece of paper with the examples from Mrs. Smith that we had been working on the past week) as well as our CSAP packet.

     After that everyone started to type a paragraph that was due at the end of class. The topic was to write a well constructed paragraph about the quote "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety do not deserve neither liberty nor safety" by Benjamin Franklin. We had to either refute or defend the quote and also practice how to write a CSAP paragraph. 

    Also, we briefly discussed the current events regarding SOPA and PIPA, two bills that, in short, well censor the internet. The hacker group "Anonymous" came up several times, since they are modern freedom fighters (much like hacker in Little Brother).

The homework for the weekend is to read chapters 11-12 in Little Brother, 1 question about it, and we should be done with chapters 6-12 by Monday (with 3 questions).
