It is taking longer than I expected to determine the responsibility of Captain Turner of the Lusitania. We are continuing to finish up debates and summaries. Next week, I'm going to set aside each day for research. The Tuesday students will need to complete their debate next week, but everyone else should have the whole period to get a solid start on their projects.
The Little Theater in Jefferson City is performing The Crucible by Arthur Miller October 13 - 15. It has been quite a while since I've seen it, but it is about the Salem Witch Trials. I seem to recall that the play was written as a response to McCarthyism. Some of my students are researching the Salem Witch Trials and might enjoy seeing the show!
