View College Inc excerpts.  Take notes on the following topic:
 
"One of the ideas the Department of Education has put out there is that in order for a college to be eligible to receive money from student loans, it actually has to show that the education it's providing has enough value in the job market so that students can pay their loans back," says Kevin Carey of the Washington think tank Education Sector.

As you view the excerpt on marketing, consider the case of Anne Cobb. At 35, Anne made less than $7,000 a year but was able to apply for a student loan. She graduated with more than $30,000 in debt and has struggled to pay back her loans.

What do you think about Anne’s situation?

Do you think students at other higher-education institutions face similar problems?

Explain your answers in complete sentences due Friday.

Discuss

According to the  American Management Association AMA:

U.S. executives say they need a workforce equipped with skills beyond the traditional “three Rs” of reading, writing, and arithmetic if they are to grow their businesses in  the 21st century. Today’s employees need to think critically, solve problems, innovate, collaborate, and communicate more effectively—at every level within the organization. They must excel at the “four Cs”: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.

 

The AMA 2012 Critical Skills Survey defined the skills as follows:

Critical thinking and problem solving—the ability to make decisions, solve problems, and take action as appropriate

Effective communication—the ability to synthesize and transmit your ideas both in written and oral formats

Collaboration and team building—the ability to work effectively with others, including those from diverse groups and with opposing points of view

Creativity and innovation—the ability to see what’s NOT there and make something happen

 

 

The world runs on projects – everyday life projects like planning and planting a garden, school projects like devising and performing experiments for a science fair project, and work-world projects like designing and building a bridge or developing and delivering a community program to reduce energy use. Managing and leading projects are essential life skills, learning skills and career skills. As a set of life skills, project methods are learned starting at a very young age and continue throughout one’s life.  As a progression of learning skills, students begin applying project approaches to their learning in primary grades and continue through adulthood as lifelong learners.

"Every country on earth at the moment is reforming public education. There are two reasons for this. The first of them is economic. People are trying to work out how do we educate our children to take their place in the economies of the 21st century? How do we do that given that we can't anticipate what the economy will look like at the end of next week, as the recent turmoil is demonstrated. How do we do that?"

Our Essential Question for our new unit:

How does perspective shape or alter truth?
In honor of Veteran's Day consider the following perspectives:

How to talk to veterans about the war


Wes Moore joined the US Army to pay for college, but the experience became core to who he is. In this heartfelt talk, the paratrooper and captain—who went on to write "The Other Wes Moore"—explains the shock of returning home from Afghanistan. He shares the single phrase he heard from civilians on repeat, and shows why it's just not sufficient. It's a call for all of us to ask veterans to tell their stories — and listen.

YOUR ASSIGNMENT TODAY
Complete Part 1 and Part 2



PART 1) CONSIDER FOR PART OF YOUR PROJECT or continue to the pledge assignment--- READ THE FOLLOWING FOR COMPARISON TO 1984 (YOU MAY CLICK ON LINKS BELOW)

PARAGRAPH FIVE

"The instrument (the telescreen, it was called) could be dimmed, but there was no way of shutting it off completely... The telescreen received and transmitted simultaneously. Any sound that Winston made, above the level of a very low whisper, would be picked up by it, moreover, so long as he remained within the field of vision which the metal plaque commanded, he could be seen as well as heard. There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever they wanted to. You had to live -- did live, from habit that became instinct -- in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized."  1984 Orwell

Additional Resources:
Free Speech and Pledge

Oaths of Enlistment and Oaths of Office

The following words were spoken by the late Red Skelton on his television  program as he related the story of his teacher, Mr. Laswell, who felt his students had come to think of the Pledge of Allegiance as merely something to recite in class each day. 
I me, an individual, a committee of one.
Pledge dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self pity.
Allegiance my love and  my devotion.
To the flag our standard, Old Glory, a symbol of freedom. Wherever  she waves, there's respect because your loyalty has given  her a dignity that shouts freedom is everybody's job!
United that means that we have all come together.
States individual communities that have united into 48 great states.  Forty-eight individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose; all divided with imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common purpose, and that's love for country.
And to the republic a state in which sovereign power is invested in representatives chosen by the people to govern. And government is the people and it's from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.
For which it stands, one nation one nation, meaning
Indivisible incapable of being divided.
With liberty which is freedom  -- the right of power to live one's own life without threats, fear or some sort of  retaliation.
And Justice the principle or quality of dealing  fairly with others.
For all which means, boys and girls, it's as much your country as it is mine.

Periods 1,2,4,5,7 in room 1211

 

George Orwell as a "Prophet" assignment-- creative writing based on Literature and the real world:

Prophecy: “A prediction.” “knowledge of the future (usually obtained from a divine source)”
Prophetic: “foretelling events”

DIRECTIONS
 

  • Select one of the choices below to replace the critical response due this week (#2 and optionally read it to replace #3 when you are done). 

  • Both choices must be a minimum of two single spaced times new roman size 12 font single spaced text pages. 

  • Due Monday for presentation/ reading to the class.

  • All elements that have been updated by you or your partner must be highlighted:

 

1) Select a memorable section from your reading and as many instances of “Orwell as prophet” as possible, including instances of modern technologies now available imagined in 1984 -- but were not available in 1948-49 when it was written. Current events are fair game as well.  The full text of 1984 is available online HERE. It must be at least two pages single spaced to be presented to the class Monday March 2nd.   You may work in pairs or alone.  Each person needs a copy of the final work for submission.

2) Creatively describe a day in the life of Winston as if the events were happening in 2015-- or be a prophet and imagine 2054!  Your challenge is to include instances of modern technologies now available that occurred in 1984, as well, but were not available in 1948-49. Current events are fair game as well.  The full text of 1984 is available online HERE. It must be at least two pages single spaced to be presented to the class Monday March 2nd.   You may work in pairs or alone.  Each person needs a copy of the final work for submission.

 

Consider the following aspects, as part of technology discussed in class, to incorporate:

 

Corporations are people by law... is the modern big brother "big corporations," are they the "ministries" of 1984?  What is the Ministry of Truth related to NEWS 12, ABC, CNN, Fox, MSNBC?  Who actually OWNS them? Can a corporation have a religion?  The right to free speech?


Telescreeens – we have two-way televisions today that are used for the news, web- conferencing, and “satellite” television appearances, etc.


Spies/Thought Police/Fear–the Red Scare of the 1950’s had everyone suspicious of everyone else for being a Communist. The USA Patriot Act allows anyone simply suspected of crimes to be surveilled and inspected without their knowledge.  What is the NSA?  What is your right to privacy?  Who can see the books you read or internet searches? 


Biometrics – the “emerging field of technology devoted to [the] identification of individuals using biological traits, such as those based on retinal or iris scanning, fingerprints, or face recognition”


Webcams, Cell Phone Cameras, Security Cameras – self-explanatory. List the different ways the government of 1984 maintains power over its people and ask yourself if there is anything like this today.  Of course, you would have to really think about all of the things you take for granted... and even like. 


Limited language—  Slang/education/media/euphemism/ etc.

Constant monitoring of personal space—both mental and physical space is constantly being watched by someone, to the extent that even an out-of-sorts facial expression could be grounds for action.  All of your public and business records ore in a database.  Money is moving to electronic only.

The world is void of emotion—Love is taken out of the equation, friendship is discouraged, conformity is greatly encouraged. Also, the limited vocabulary and threat of being “found out” makes creating and/or expressing any form of emotion difficult.  Having everything "out there and online" makes our personal lives meaningless... they are not personal.  Does anyone really care about what doesn't impact them directly or is it actually entertainmet?

Vaporization—Those who do disobey or step out of line are tortured and/or vaporized, meaning that they were displaced, abandoned, or more than likely, killed.  Consider prison statistics and mandatory minimums.

Rationing of supplies—The rationing of food and other necessary supplies (The management of the economy; the constant shortage of razor blades throughout the text; the rationed chocolate and oil prices etc...) makes the people dependent upon the government. What is analytics and how is it related to your consumer purchases?  Money is moving to electronic only.

The filtering of literature and informational documents—Any data read or heard by the people was more than likely created by the party itself and okayed for dispersal amongst the masses.  Media and reputation management.  What is the press secratary? What is "spin" in the news?

Hectic scheduling and distraction—Extremely long work days, mandatory workouts and other community activities leave no time for individuals. Also leaves no time for mischief, political education, or to research news.

Never ending news-- What is the Chiron?  Why is there always movement in modern video news programs? How much news is entertainment or sports?

Erasure of all things past—  "What is the past"  Who writes history? Textbooks? Compare the delete key to the memory hole.

News as entertainment--  news that is not actually news.

The last day of classes will be Friday, June 12th. This is a link to the Exam Schedule.  

Tuesday, June 2 Longwood will be hosting the Common Core Geometry Exam. We will have a normal school day period 1-4. At the end of period 4 students will be dismissed to their buses. All students taking the Common Core Exam will go to assigned Cafe's. At 10:47 they will go to their assigned testing rooms. BOCES students will go to the LGI and then to the Cafe after 10:47. 

Here is a link that has the testing room and proctoring assignments for that day. Unlike Regents week proctoring the assignments are done in 40-50 minute blocks.

Senior Memory Book Assignment
DUE at the start of class. 
No passes to print will be given.
















Essential Question:

How does film serve as a vehicle of social change?

Supporting Questions:

How do people really make a difference?
What is their approach? Their vision?
What are the steps or process to making a difference?
What kinds of people are good at this?
Are there common characteristics and/or personal attributes that visionary problem-solvers have?
What do you care about? What do the people around you need?
What is going on around you right now, in your own community?
What would you need to do now to get going?
What is the American Dream and to what extent is it achievable for all Americans?
How do we form and shape our identities?
In the face of adversity, what causes some individuals to prevail while others fail?
What is hypocrisy and what can the individual/subculture/culture do about it?
What is the difference between stating a belief and living a belief? Do we have choices concerning fairness and justice?


As a result of these learning experiences, students should be better able to:
Recognize both problems and potential solutions to local issues.
Recognize that there are different levels of entry into involvement in social issues.





Cowboy or Shogun, who is the hero?

Sports can be seen as an expression of culture and a transmitter of values.

Identify how American culture and values are expressed at popular sporting events?

What American values are conveyed through such experiences? 

Are their differences between American and Japanese values?

Kokoyakyu - High School Baseball 


Create a Venn Diagram where you identify the characteristics of the western (American) hero and the eastern (Japanese) hero.  You must have at least 10 qualities using Kokoyakyu - High School Baseball or research.

As you view Kokoyakyu - High School Baseball take notes on things that allow these students to overcome adversity for their goals?  Look HERE.

Based on what you have seen or read, what can be learned about Japanese culture from the way baseball is played in Japan? What values are transmitted?
