DAILY CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES: 

Monday, Nov. 10 – 12: We’ll be watching two movies: Titanic and World Trade Center this week. After the movies are over, we’ll be asked to write a one-page essay comparing either “The Untold Story of the Fight to Survive Inside the Twin Towers” vs. World Trade Center (the movie) or “R.M.S. Titanic” by Hanson W. Baldwin vs. Titanic (the movie). As we watch the movies, we’re making notes on our old journal entries in our spiral notebooks. For World Trade Center, please make additional notes on the six-heroes graphic organizer page (look for entries on or around Oct. 10). If you’re gone for part of one movie, you can probably choose to do your essay on the other one.

Thursday, Nov. 13: Today we were given our final assignment of the trimester: write an essay comparing either “The Untold Story of the Fight to Survive Inside the Twin Towers” vs. World Trade Center (the movie) OR “R.M.S. Titanic” by Hanson W. Baldwin vs. Titanic (the movie). Since it’s the very end of the trimester, if you’re gone for this short essay, your teacher will excuse you from this essay assignment.
