This is a test...of Blogger's IPhone App

The above link is one that I use to check out cool toy reviews. The picture is from a previous episode of adventure time. As I said before, this is a test of the iPhone app.

As per our class discussion, this week's current events quiz will be on Tuesday. Your two paragraph post on this blog will also be due at the start of class Tuesday. You will be allowed the 20 words to assist you on the quiz.

Your first article is a sort of "rebuttal" to one of our first articles. Will 3D really "take off"?

Local education for the creation of video games? Read about it here.

I would really like to see this film- but alas, my current schedule does not afford me the luxury of seeing movies outside of my living room. Even though Casey Affleck announced that it was not real, the fact that people thought it was proves that Joaquin is a great actor (and worth paying attention to) .

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend-- mine was very busy and full of baby-centric things. Just like last week, you will be allowed to a notecard (or piece of paper) with 20 words on it (no more). A two paragraph post is due by the start of class Monday and you will have a quiz on Monday.

If you need a pass in order to get this done, please let me know Monday morning.

This is an interesting article about a new broadway show starring an 80s icon.

Fall television preview! Will you be watching any of these new shows? If you plan on it, let me know.

Your First Real Blog Post!!!

As we discussed in class on Friday, you will be required to read all of the articles and post a two paragraph response to one of the articles. This will be due at the start of class on Wednesday. On Wednesday, you will have a quiz about all articles on the blog. You will be allowed to use a 3x5 index card during the quiz-- the catch? You cannot have more than 20 words on the card. If you have more than 20 words, you will get a "0" on the quiz.

Because both of these articles are long, I am only posting 2 articles this week!

This article hits on the upcoming change to 3D Television and how it will once again create a generational gap.

This is a longer article about Halo and how Microsoft has managed to create a video game franchise.

8 bit Mario!
Welcome to our "new blog test run". For homework tonight, each of you are to access this blog and leave a response to the article that I have posted below. This response should be at least one paragraph in length and up to the standards of your grade level. When responding to an article, you are not summarizing. Instead, you are proving to me that you read the article, internalized it and are able to respond how you feel about the piece.

Even though you are on the Internet writing a response, this is not you Facebook- an aspect of the grade you receive will be based on mechanics.

Here is an interesting link to an article that questions wether video games are considered art.
