Today we read chapter one of Animal Farm and started making a list of the different characters and who they represent in real life (since Animal Farm works as a fairy tale/allegory).  We also talked about some of the major themes of the book and tips on taking notes in your book so that you can prepare well for the test.  Talk to Miss Newman for help on that.

For history, we continued our notes on how power was taken away from the King and the Pope so that America could even be possible.  Specifically, we took notes on the Magna Carta and Henry VIII.  You will want to get these notes from a friend or talk to your teachers for information.
