Hi Art/English Students!
We have so many fun things planned for this year. First, we will read Lord of the Flies and create art that represents working alone and working together, just like the boys on the island did. We will make Artist trading Cards and trade them among our group. Then, we'll pick the one we like most and create a jewelry piece! How cool is that? Watch for more right here!

This is the last post you will write for this class. What are your final thoughts about the class, the school year or whatever. You can continue writing anytime you like. You can come back and read your old posts and you can even use this to keep up with your classmates as you all go your separate ways. This is your blog. Your blog will stay online until you decide whether or not to keep it.

I've enjoyed having you in class. I've learned as much from you as you have from me. pass/pict/GoodLuck2.jpg

Are you ready to take the pledge? Early this semester we viewed two videos on the dangers of texting while driving. Oprah has aked America to take the pledge and save lives by not endangering lives while texting and driving. For more information, to sign the pledge, watch videos about it, click here.

Please write about your thoughts on this. Check out what the law is in Florida and should it be changed. If you took the pledge, explain why. If you didn't take the pledge you might want to share your thoughts about it.

You could also write about anything related to texting. How much do you text? Are you addicted to it? How does it affect your school work? How should schools handle the growing texting problem?

Use your remaining time to work on your transendentalism quote and your movie.
