Today's Activity: I don't know about you but my tolerance for fear is right in the middle. I love scary movies but I do not fair well in haunted houses or even fun houses for that matter! (Ask me to tell you about my first time in a fun house.)

Apparently fear propels imagination, as it forces us to imagine the possible futures and how to cope with them. Let's investigate this more, shall we?

Homework: Complete Ted Talk reflection

EXTRA CREDIT OPP: Dress up for Class either Thursday or Friday! Happy Halloween!

Today's Activity: The setting of “The Pit and the Pendulum” takes place during the Spanish Inquisition. We infer that the main character has been sentenced to death for either Protestant or heretical (unconventional) Catholic beliefs because during this time period, Spain set out to rid their country of all religions that were not of a strict Catholic orthodox. Therefore, the main character becomes a prisoner of a war on religion. In 1967 Navy flier John McCain was shot down in his Skyhawk dive bomber and taken as a prisoner of war in Vietnam. He spent over 5 years in captivity as a P.O.W. and wrote a first-hand account about his horrific ordeal!
