Surname (Last name), middle name, first name? Is there a story behind your naming? Someone famous, a family member, weird initials? Does your name have symbolic meaning? Is it ethnic or historic or literary? Did your parents consider other names? In short, how do you live with your name? Create: A Circle Map (See example on next slide) to explore ideas about your name. -In the center, put your full name. -In the next circle outside: make notes about your name. Consider the prompt. No wrong answer. --In the outer box, list your sources of information about your name. **Remember – this is about your name – not about you.

Be sure to label your questions with their level number! Warm-up #5Article #1 Questions8/30/13 I think I should use my notes that I took in class yesterday

9 { **Greek Mythology Research: Hold Read: Personal Synectics makes the familiar strange and the strange familiar. It is the basis of all metaphor and involves the process of creative problem-solving. The following question ask for a choice between unrelated answers, answers which can be logically related somehow, and yet, there is no single correct answer. Write Are you more like May or December? Be sure to support your assertion (Claim) with specific examples and details. Warm-up #6Connections9/03/13 Ummm... How can I be a season?

Write an opposite opinion, and be believable! Write Yesterday, you were either May or December. Today, you will argue that you are the opposite.

11 { **Greek Mythology Research/Chart: Get out and hold Read: ( from a Blog Post: “Hero- overused word of the hour.”) Barryweber: “The absurb overuse of hero designation is a phenomenon of the media, primarily. I do not hear, in normal conversation, the word ever being used. I think there is an intrinsic understanding among most people that there is a hallowedness implicit in the word and that the use of the word hero should be spare. But that is not true of the news-spitters on Channels 4,5,6,7, or 11. Watch them tonight and you WILL see one or more of them succumb to the apparently always-audible sirens’ song of invitation to sing of the great Ulysses’ glorious deeds. The fireman climbing the tree for a cat, the 7’3″ mega-rich forward going in for a layup, and the clerk who ran out of the store and up the street to return a forgotten purse to a customer: sorry, but I’ve seen the pictures of firemen heading up stair cases that are about to come tumbling down. You have, too. And they are my benchmark now for defining heroism.” Write: (1/2 page) What does the word hero mean to you? Agree, disagree or find a different way of approaching the subject from the blog post quote above. Warm-up #8Hero Defined9/05/13

When his father, who was old and twisted with toil, made over to him the ownership of the farm and seemed content to creep away to a corner and wait for death, he shrugged his shoulders, and he dismissed the old man from his mind.

I might “Care not a whistle” for “Thundering Zeus or all the gods in bliss”, too, if I was only given one eye! Wait, did I just EMBED a quote in my thoughts???

19 { Read: From Yahoo Answers Question: What's the best way to study vocabulary? I want to study [some] vocabulary words... for [a] test. Which methods work best... when you study a lot of vocabulary words? (And better yet, which methods are most effective for retaining those words?) Best Answer - Chosen by Asker I used to be an actress and learning page after page of script was not easy. I found that utilizing all parts of the brain is what makes the learning process faster. So write out a sentence, while saying it out loud ( so that you hear the word as well as speaking it), and ( I don't know why this matters but it does!), try to be moving around at the same time! That's why you see actors pacing around a lot! Another idea is to record the words and listen to them while doing other things (like jogging or drawing). Also approach each word from both directions... that is, have someone give the definition and see if you can remember the word, then do it the other way round with someone giving you the word and see if you can remember the definition. Gradually eliminate the words you are getting right and focus on those you continue to have trouble with. Warm-up #14Vocabulary Test Prep9/13/13 I studied so hard, my other eyeball fell out ! Write: A brief description of how you prepared for today’s test! Then, respond to the suggestions above, embedding at least one quote!

The ruling in Avista Management v. Wausau Underwriters stated: Upon consideration of the Motion - it is ORDERED that said Motion is DENIED. Instead, the Court will fashion a new form of alternative dispute resolution, to wit: at 4:00 P.M. on Friday, June 30, 2006, counsel shall convene at a neutral site agreeable to both parties. If counsel cannot agree on a neutral site, they shall meet on the front steps of the Sam M. Gibbons U.S. Courthouse. Each lawyer shall be entitled to be accompanied by one paralegal who shall act as an attendant and witness. At that time and location, counsel shall engage in one game of "rock, paper, scissors." The winner of this engagement shall be entitled to select the location for the 30(b)(6) deposition to be held somewhere in Hillsborough County during the period July 11–12, The public release of this judicial order, widely circulated among area lawyers, was seemingly intended to shame the respective law firms regarding their litigation conduct by settling the dispute in a farcical manner.
