The Purpose of this Blog
Your task on this blog is to write a brief summary of what we learned in class today. Include enough detail so that someone who was ill or missed the lesson can catch up with what they missed. Over the course of the term, these 'class scribe' posts will grow to be a guide book for the course, written by students for students.
With each post ask yourself the following questions:
1) Is this good enough for our guide book?
2) Will your post enable someone who wasn't here to catch up?
3) Would a graphic/video/link help to illustrate what we have learned??xml:namespace>

We then read the book.
After reading it we all had to re-write some of the passage saying what the characters were thinking rather then what they were saying.
My one went like :
(Willy in Howard's office)
Howard: Oh god it's you.
Willy: I need to speak to you.
Howard: Ahh doesn't my daughter have such a beautiful voice?
Willy: I really need to speak to you!
Howard: And my boy is so damn clever, will you just leave already.
Willy: What on earth is that?
Howard: Well i bought it for dictation, it's an amazing machine, but i doubt that you can afford one.
Willy: I could get one, but I don't want one.
Howard: Well you should, it can record radio shows if you miss them.
Willy: That would be good for me, as am always driving and missing them.
Howard: Can't you afford a radio in your car?
Willy: I have it, I just don't use it.
Howard: Wait a minute, why are you not in Boston?
Willy: Because I really need to talk to you about a raise.
Howard: Yes but you should be there, you lost it again eh?
Willy: No! of-course not!
Howard: Oh thank god! Your getting old.
Willy: I've had enough of it, I don't want to travel no more.
Howard: Why on earth not?
Willy: But, remember Christmas you said you would give me a desk job?
Howard: Oh did i, well cant give you one no space.
Willy: But me and your father were so-
Howard: Yes that was then this is now.
Willy: Please, I need this raise.
Willy: But me and your father-
Willy: Let me tell you this story-
Howard: Seriously NO, business is business.
Willy: I'll work for fifty dollars please am begging!
Howard: Am sorry, but no.
Willy: 40 dollars, I'll work for anything just pleas give me the job, and am so good at my job.
Howard: No your not, now i must go and get away from you!
Willy: I really need to impress him, desperately need this raise.
Howard: (rushing in) Your still here, you know what you need a break-
Willy: No please done fire me!
Howard: I don't want you to work for us.
Willy: I can't believe your firing me.
Howard: You need to go and relax.
Willy: But I'm broke, i need money.
Howard: Get your two sons to help you.
Willy: Yeah sure thing, like they can help.
Howard: Well I'm sorry, I just cant have you working for us anymore.
Willy: Please this is my life!
Howard: Am busy now. Goodbye.
This was the lesson; for homework we have to comment on my awesome blog on the videos which are in the Chatterley folder located in the W drive.
