Compare what happened in Birmingham to what happened in Boston.
In Birmingham, a group of people bombed a church of black people and killed 4 young girls.
In Boston, a group of people killed 3 people and injured more than 100 other people.
Keelin, this is an answer which is superficial and without thought. Do it again, with thought, feeling and depth.
The definition of terrorism is “The use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.”
In Birmingham, a group of people used the act of terror by bombing a black church to quiet the blacks from trying to get their rights.

“When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination. A recently drilled nearby Pennsylvania town reports that residents are able to light their drinking water on fire. This is just one of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called GASLAND.

We went to see Stomp again, and we all really liked it. There is no point in writing a short piece about your reaction, so let’s do something different.
What is Stomp? How did it start? Is it music or is it dance, and why? What other types of performance art are now part of the mainstream and how did they begin?
Stomp is a percussion group that uses the body and ordinary objects to create a physical theater performance. Stomp started in Brighton, UK. It was a collaboration between its creators, Steve McNicholas and Luke Cresswell. They first worked together in 1981, as members of the street band and a theater group. Stomp is music and dance combined,because they have beats going with choreographed moves around the stage.
What is street dancing? Street dancing is dance styles that people do outside of dance studios in any space.
Going to see the bodies at the museum helped me learn more about the human body. It helped me because I got to see the inside of a human body, with all of the organs and muscles. It also give me the experience of seeing a real human body on the inside. They where posed differently to show how the muscles moved. Two of the bodies, where posed dancing. They had multiple bodies (male & female) with multiple poses. One thing I noticed was, there where way more males that females. If the bodies came from a jail, there would most likely be more males the females.
I think my mom had me go to see this to help us see what the body is like on the inside, and to show us what happens when you do alcohol and smoke.
Even though it was a good learning experience, it was really disturbing to me. I think that because it was real human bodies (I really dislike that), they just stare at you (creepy), and just being near the bodies made me feel like like they would jump out at me.
I’m pretending to be the injured otter.
“I don’t know that the coyote is near. My main focus is to find food, and survive for as long as I can. I feel in pain and Misery. Also i am scared because, there is danger out there. I think something is chasing me, I can hear it following me. Something stops me, and I feel a sharp pain in my back feet. I’m too scared to look at what it is. All I hear now is growling, and then…………………………………………………………….. I see the white light.
When you make a prediction about a character’s development or the outcome of a story, you are demonstrating an understanding of the various literary elements of the story. These elements may include the setting, conflict, plot development, and point of view. Being able to recognize and analyze these pieces is essential in the development of reading comprehension skills.
Watch this video segment that shows a young injured otter’s attempts to locate his missing family, find food and remain safe while dealing with the winter elements in Yellowstone National Park. Predict what happens next and then write a narrative account of these events from three possible points of view: the injured otter, the filmmaker or an animal behaviorist.
