We watched the rough copy of the John Oliver Show.  All we need now are the graphics.  We’ll view the final product on Monday.

We considered Research possibilities for next year, including our examination of the latest Trump version of Julius Caesar and the ramifications of this production.

Please bring back the text Reading the World next class if you haven’t done so already.

We will be having a debate with the AP Research class on Monday.

Good work on the “John Oliver Last Week Tonight” show!  The storyboard is almost complete and can be found in the dropbox.  The script, including the CONCLUSION (ShuLei), should be COMPLETE by Tuesday’s class.  Please meet in the classroom.

We will be filming the show in segments so that each group can then insert the media as we go.  Peter and Yang will splice all the segments together on Thursday and then we shall be done!

Congratulations on your debate win!
