Recently in Mr. Croy's class we have been talking about fake news and how we could tell if it is fake or real. We read a play called "The War of the Worlds" by H.G Wells. Mr. Croy told us a story about how a radio broadcast was reading the novel and people thought is was real. I thought that it was stupid that people actually fell for it. He also assign use a Newsela about it. I think I would never fall for fake news because I have pretty good common sense. Well... at least I think.
Hope you enjoyed :)

The Tempest was a very interesting play. First off the writing was confusing and it was very hard to understand. Secondly, the play had very weird elements to it to make it very weird and fun. Even after all the confusion and everything I still got one thing out of this, forgiveness is the key. Prospero forgave his brother after all these years. Prosper could have just killed him right where he stood, but through compassion he decide it wasn't the right thing to do. That was what I got out of this very interesting play.
These are some lines from Shakespeare's "The Tempest" that are translated to present day language.
Act 1, Scene 1, Lines 1-14
Boatswain- What Master: what's the problem
Master- Go get the people and tell them that the ship might sink, hurry up!
Boatswain- Guys, we are sinking, come here, come here take down the sails and go help the Master
Hope you enjoyed :)

Today we watched the movie The Tempest. This show is crazy. The actors helped a lot to understand whats was happening. To be honest I still don't understand, and some of the characters are crazy. Ariel in this movie is not what i expected. First I thought he was a girl. Next he acted really crazy which was kinda funny. So far my favorite characters is Ariel just because how funny he is. That my thoughts of the movie so far.

My class and I read the play The Tempest by Willam Shakespeare. My table group started to read a couple lines, and it looks like Chinese. I was so confused thought I didn't even know that they were on the boat. Mr. Croy though helped us understand it better by reading a summary of it. I hope that ill understand it soon, so I can enjoy it with the class.
