Art Sept. 25-29

Contrast Project


Calla Lily Black

 Contrast is a principle of art. When defining it, art experts refer to the arrangement of opposite elements (light vs. dark colors, rough vs. smooth textures, large vs. small shapes, etc.) in a piece so as to create visual interest, excitement, and drama.

Students will be instructed to take pictures of high contrast models in order to recreate them using Crescent Paper and Gesso as a medium.


Physical Education September 25- September 29, 2017

ELEVENTH GRADE: During this week, the students will work on developing the following fundamental skills of BASKETBALL: passing, dribbling, free throw, layups and shooting. Students will put this knowledge to test in games. One day a week we will have aerobic fitness test.


4 Purposes of Fitness Testing:

  1. Recognize current fitness-level
  2. Set realistic goals based on current level
  3. Learn how to become more fit and have fun doing it
  4. Reflect on goals and lifelong fitness intentions

There are many reasons to assess fitness testing, but not grade it.  We want students to value their fitness and their own personal results, but never to be graded by their scores. Instead of grading, we should focus on assessing students on demonstrating the value of it.



Required Materials for Class:  Tennis shoes, water bottle and appropriate clothing.


Optional Materials for Class:  Bug spray, hat and sunscreen.        

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: To participate in class activities and receive full credit for the class, students need to wear appropriate clothing for P.E. class.


GOALS: We will use the word RESPECT to set the main goals for the year.


Right to Learn – Every child has this right to be educated!

Effort – Win or lose, trying is the most important trait.

Safety – The number one priority each day!

Purpose – Understanding how the activity can benefit you.

Enthusiasm – Positive energy creates a positive environment!

Challenge – Challenge yourself to improve each day.

Trust/Teamwork – Work with and trust others, the result can be amazing!


REMINDER: I would like to remind you that all students need to be dressed appropriately for the days that they have P.E. class. Students should refrain from using the following:

–  Dresses for the girls

–  Jeans (shorts or pants)

–  Crocks

–  Sandals

–  Boots



Have fun!

Candy, food, and/or gum – out of sight, out of mind!

Positive attitude!

Remain in supervised areas all the time!






Political Science – Week of Sept. 25 to Sept. 29

There will be a unit assessment on Tuesday covering the issues of campaign finance (should there be limits to spending/contributions, what is “dark money”?) and the major candidates for president in the November elections (who are the main candidates, what parties do these candidates represent, what are some of the main planks in each of these parties’ platforms?).

Monday will be spent tying together loose ends and getting students caught up.

A new unit will begin on Wednesday that will cover political communications – speeches, debates, and political advertising both by candidates and by interest groups/political action committees.

2.2 Text Compression Enrichment

Extended Learning

Real World: Zip Compression

  • Experiment with zip using text files with different contents. Are the results for small files as good as for large files? (On Macs, in the Finder choose “get info” for a file to see the actual number of bytes in the file, since the Finder display will show 4KB for any file that’s less than that.)
    • Warning: results may vary. Zip works really well for text, but it might not compress other files very well because they are already compressed or don’t have the same kinds of embedded patterns that text documents do.

Challenge: Research the LZW algorithm

  • .zip compression is based on the LZW Compression Scheme
  • While the idea behind the text compression tool is similar to LZW (zip) algorithm, tracing the path of compression and decompression is somewhat challenging. Learning more about LZW and what happens in the course of this algorithm would be an excellent extension project for some individuals.

2.3 Encoding B&W Images Enrichment

Extended Learning

  • Check out the “Color by Numbers” from CS Unplugged ( which uses a different clever encoding scheme for B&W images.
  • Have students research raster graphics in anticipation of the subsequent lesson.
  • Attempting to communicate with possible intelligent life beyond our solar system has been a dream for humans and the goal of scientists for many years. Questions about messages to send, as well as how to send messages deep into space to unknown recipients have been debated. In 1974, scientists sent the Arecibo message to the star cluster M13 some 25,000 light years away. Read about the message they sent using 1,679 binary digits (
    • How would you change the content of the message? What would you delete and add? Why would your change be significant in a communication to other intelligent beings?
    • Sketch the segment of the design you would alter. Remember, you must retain the original number of bits.
    • List the details in this article that you understand more deeply because of what you have learned in this class up to this point.
