Dreamscape Fieldtrip

posted Sep 21, 2018, 2:35 PM by James Godoy

We have been invited to watch the play, Dreamscape, at the Edison Theater on Monday, September 24. This play, focusing on an officer involved shooting, is rated PG-13 because of some mature subject matter. “The play features two actors, two chairs and one mic and is structured around an autopsy report recited by a dispassionate coroner. The more we learn about Myeisha, the more she literally comes to life, and the more the repeated fact of her death shocks. The second actor provides the beat-boxing, effortlessly shape shifting to intermittently offer a kind of Greek chorus commentary.”

We will leave school around 12:15 on Monday and return around 3:00. Please call if you have any questions or would like to discuss the play. Thanks for your time and consideration.

Hemos sido invitados a ver la obra, Dreamscape, en el Teatro Edison el lunes, 24 de septiembre. Esta obra, centrada en un oficial involucrado en tiroteos, está clasificada PG-13 debido a algún tema maduro. "La obra cuenta con dos actores, dos sillas y un micrófono y está estructurada en torno a un informe de autopsia recitado por un forense desapasionado. Cuanto más aprendemos sobre Myeisha, más literalmente cobra vida y más choca el hecho repetido de su muerte. El segundo actor ofrece el beat-boxing, cambiando de forma sin esfuerzo para ofrecer intermitentemente una especie de comentario de coro griego ".

Saldremos de la escuela alrededor de las 12:15 el lunes y regresaremos alrededor de las 3:00. Por favor llame si tiene alguna pregunta o desea hablar de la obra. Gracias por su tiempo y consideracion.

Yosemite Letter and Supply List

posted Sep 17, 2018, 6:48 PM by James Godoy   [ updated Sep 18, 2018, 7:46 AM ]

Yosemite Camping Trip

On September 19th the entire school will go on an overnight school trip to Yosemite Valley (in Yosemite National Park) to study and learn in the outdoors. This type of Placed Based Education is part of our school district’s strategic plan and will be a great way for our students to learn in a new environment, with fun activities, applied learning, and interdisciplinary study tied directly to California content standards. These are regular school days, only in a different location. Student attendance is required. The assignments completed on this trip (and as a result of this trip) will form an important part of students’ class grades. On this trip we will be taking samples of water to analyze pH levels, learning how the government makes decisions, constructing sundials and hatchet planimeters, debating whether to drain the reservoir to restore the valley, and much more!

We will spend both Wednesday and Thursday night at Dimond O Campground, west of Yosemite, near Hetch Hetchy. We will have spotty phone service. We will leave school around 9:00 AM on Wednesday the 19th and return to school by 12:45 PM on Friday, September 21st in time to take the bus home. Please see the attached schedule to see a more detailed description of our activities during the trip.

Also attached is a list of supplies and equipment each student will need. Please go over this list carefully. If there are items that you do not have, please send a note to school and we will make sure the items will be provided. All meals will be provided.

AP and Honors Summer Reading 2018

posted Jul 19, 2018, 9:34 AM by James Godoy

Please be sure that you finish the following summer reading assignments by the first day of school, Monday, August 20. All students taking Honors World History, AP English Literature, AP Government, or AP Econ must complete following reading and note-taking assignments:

AP English Literature: The Great Gatsby & Their Eyes Were Watching God

AP Microeconomics: Textbook: Principles of Economics and the Econ Reader

Honors World History: Guns, Germs, and Steel and Chapters 1 and 2 of Panorama

The note-taking assignment is due on August 20 and you will be tested on your understanding of the texts later in the week. You will receive credit in English class as well as Government and Econ for these summer assignments once school begins.

Note-Taking Assignment

In order to give you credit for taking notes and reading actively and to ensure that you read carefully, you will be given points in history and English classes for taking notes.

For English: Use post-its to annotate (mark passages and write notes/thoughts on specific lines of your books--be reflective and analytical, don’t summarize). Be sure that your notes are thorough enough. You should mark something with a post-it at least every ten pages and have several more in-depth reflections. Express your opinion and analyze more than you summarize.

For Economics:

  • Read and take notes on the first chapter of the textbook using the Cornell Notes style.

    • Summarize the 10 Principles of Economics

  • Read the articles in the reader

    • Write a short (2-3 sentence) summary of each article.

    • For each article, describe the problem or situation being studied with the following questions in mind.

      • What is the problem?

      • Why, according to the economists, are the subjects acting the way they do?

      • How can this behavior be changed?

      • What real-life implications does this study have?

      • Which of the 10 Principles of Economics is reflected in the article?

Due Date: Monday, August 20, 2018

Tips for Summer Reading

  • Please don’t wait until the last minute, but the books should be fresh in your mind at the beginning of the school year. We recommend beginning reading around July 23. This will give you four weeks to finish the books.

  • Read carefully and actively; don’t just breeze through the book. You will be responsible for a test and several writing assignments on the texts, so you need to remember details. Use the required note-taking assignments to help you read actively.

  • All together you will be able to earn a great deal of points from the summer reading (a comprehension test, the note-taking assignment, and a few writing assignments once school begins), so read carefully and enjoy the books.

  • If you have any questions or feel like you don’t fully understand the assignment, please call or email Ms. Taylor or Mr. Godoy
