Gulity or Innocent

I think Steve is both. He is guilty in the way that he was there when the thing went down and was part of the plan but I don't think he should get life in jail. He was doing something dumb and he knew that but he didn't do anything that caused harm to the guy. I think he should have to pay like a few years in Jail but nothing like 25 to life that's just crazy.


(January 15, 1929-April 4, 1968)
Martin Luther King
Was born Michael Luther King, Jr, but later had his name changed to Martin. His grandfather began the family's long tradition as pastors of the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta serving from 1914 to 1931 his father has served from then until the present. From 1960 until his death Martin Luther acted as co pastor. Martin Luther attended segregated public schools in Georgia, graduating from high school at the age of fifteen he received the B.

Martin Luther King lived a very accomplished life that ended to yearly.

Hunger Games?

Iv been hearing about a book called the Hunger Games people told that it is a real good book. I think our class should read it for a class book. Just the name of it sounds interesting. I think as a Sophomore class we should read more mind teasing books and books that are above our levels so when can learn new words and be able to do this Jr's or Sr's.
Id like for anybody that has read this book post a comment on it and tell me how it was.

Hait a countrie under reconstruction!!

There recently has been a devastating earthquake in Haiti where 200,000 people are presumed dead. The earthquake was a mind blowing 5.9 magnitude the earthquake struck around 6:00am and was 35 miles from the countries capital. Just recently a 5 year old boy walked out of the rubble and besides a few scraps and bruises he was unharmed. There has been help funds set up in towns and in a few schools for the Haiti disaster. We hope the best for the survivors and we feel for the dead. America has sent troops to help with the cleaning and search party's for the dead. The help to rebuild Haiti has already been set into action from several countries.

One Little Word!

It is a word that I tend not to use a lot. Its a easy to do and its something I need to work on. I get in trouble when i'm asking questions all because I ask the question and don't listen to what people have to say. I think i'm always right so I use to see no reason to listen. My mom always says I hear what I want. Now and days I need to listen i'm in High School listening is a must. Just recently I have been listening instead of talking and it got me a lot further then talking. Listening is something that my friends no I cant do as well as teachers and this year I am making it my little word of 2010.

What will be your word of 2010?

My views on Blogging

My feelings on the blogging is that I think its a great idea. The way I see it is that the more we post the more we learn from comments on what we have posted with tips on writing. As well if we post things about books people can leave suggestions to other books similar to what we posted about which I think is great. It gives you a lot more options then doing regular class work such as writing poem's we now can write them and post them online for people to see and gives us reviews on what we could do to do better. It also allows you to post reviews on books you have read and other people get ideas about them. There is a big upgrade to blogging if your not in school and your home sick you can write post on things because the teacher will be able to see it. To sum this all up I think blogging is going to change teaching in a lot of ways in the future and I think its a great idea.

The Taking Of Room 114

This quarter I read the book called The Taking OF ROOM 114 from Mel Glenn. The plot of the story is a Social Studies teacher cracks holding his students as hostages at gun point on the last day of their senior year. Mel Glenn tells this story in a series of poems from each student and cop as well as camera men and teachers. In each poem they describe the teacher ,Mr. Wiedermeyer.

I think the thing that really gives this book the puling vibe is that it is based in a classroom and could be a real situation. The students each have different descriptions of Mr. Wiedermeyer and how they feel about his class. As well the teachers explain there views on him. What I really loved about this book is that you are not able to predict whats going to happen on the next page its just a wonderful book if your into suspense and mystery books. The book in general is a short book but in each poem it has a lot of explanation but not enough to let u know whats going to happen. I have only one problem with this book is at the end I wish there was more of a ending not just a instant ending. The author really turns a hard way to wright a book into a easy reading but greatly interesting book. The structure of this book is different then a usual book like I said its written in poems. It was on of the few iv read like that and after this book I look forward to reading more like this and hope after you read this then you will feel the same way to.

What am I to DO!!

In here life is scrambled
What am I to DO!!
This ain’t baseball I’m not going home
What am I to DO!!
No this cant be true I desperately wish this was a movie
What am I to DO!!
The uniforms are orange what can I do.
What am I to DO!!
In my world this is what people do!
What am I to DO!!
I was looking desperately for a calm voice
What am I to DO!!
Me I am morning as if I’m dead
What am I to DO!!
The fights are vicious here!!
What am I to DO!!
Church is vicious to?
What am I to DO!!
