Let me just say that I think you should all go see Short Term 12. It was a remarkable, beautiful, captivating film, and I really can’t adequately describe it to you. You have to experience it yourself. But I saw it tonight with a Q&A with the director, music composer, and the executive producer afterwards and just.. wow. So many tears.
Anne Frank was born today in 1929. This quote is from her diary, “The Diary of a Young Girl” which was written while her family was in hiding during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. She died in 1945 and her diary was published in 1947 by her father, Otto Frank. You can get a copy of her diary at the library.
This was my senior quote when I graduated high school in the yearbook. :)
Testing out using more social media for my students’ Huck Finn project. They are chronicling different characters’ moral dilemmas on Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook, and interacting with one another. They are also challenged to write in dialect. Hope it is a good learning experience for them! You may come across some of these crazy posts!
I have to say, even though I know I am biased, I truly do have the loveliest daughter in the world. She is such a beautiful person inside and out.
