Last Friday and Today, Monday Feb 25th

Friday we began watching "The Neverending Story" and continued watching it today. You are to keep up with the character traits worksheet while you watch, simply writing down information about the characters so you have everything straight when you are asked to write an essay at the end of the movie. The movie fits with the optimist speech theme of "Why Me? Why Not?" Keep in mind while you are watching how some of the characters have a "Why Me?" attitude about his/her situation. Also think how the character might answer the "Well, why not?" portion of the theme. In other words, what lesson(s) do(es) the charcter(s) learn from his/her situation(s)?

No homework. We will continue watching the third portion of the movie tomorrow.
