Homework: Read your SSR book and work on your Weekly Argumentative Response (due Friday) AOTW #4 due Monday (prep for Socratic Seminar, next week) 10/13/16 Agenda For one study, University of Colorado social psychologist Joshua Correll brought in police officers to play a video game in which they were asked to shoot armed assailants. Half the targets were white; the other half were black. Some were carrying guns, others phones or wallets. The results were tragically unsurprising: Officers were quicker to shoot black people both those who were armed and who weren't than they were to shoot white people. "We rarely found the race of the officer to be a factor: Everybody shoots

black people," Correll observes. "It looks like a cultural-stereotype thing, as opposed to an in-group/out-group thing. If you stop and look around, you will see these patterns everywhere. In newspapers, they'll show pictures more often if the subject is black and mention race more often if the subject is black. So your brain starts to think that black people commit crimes." Correll mentions the "illusory correlation" as one of the factors responsible for this misperception: "If you have a group that is rare and a group that is prevalent, if the same percentage of people in both groups engage in a negative behavior, you're going to notice it more in the rare group because they stand out more. And you will think you see a correlation between race and negativity when there is none (Strauss 1). 10/14/16 Agenda Bell Work: Respond to the following prompts in complete sentences. 1) Why are Pioneers better than tractors? **Give me 3 reasons 2)

Sample Works Cited Page in MLA Format

https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/12 http://www.citationmachine.net/mla/cite-a-book/ In-text citation basic rules and examples MLA format follows the author-page method of in-text citation. This means that the author's last name and the page number(s) from which the quotation or paraphrase is taken must appear in the text, and a complete reference should appear on your Works Cited page. The author's name may appear either in the sentence itself or in parentheses following the quotation or paraphrase, but the page number(s) should always appear in the parentheses, not in the text of your sentence. Short Quote Example (author mentioned): Wordsworth stated that Romantic poetry was marked by a "spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings" (263). *Only include page number when the authors name is stated Short Quote Example (author note mentioned): Romantic poetry is characterized by the "spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings" (Wordsworth 263). *Include authors last name with page number if the authors name is not stated https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/02/

In-text citation basic rules and examples Cont. For quotations that are more than four lines of prose or three lines of verse, place quotations in a free-standing block of text and omit quotation marks. Start the quotation on a new line, with the entire quote indented inch from the left margin; maintain double-spacing. Only indent the first line of the quotation by an additional quarter inch if you are citing multiple paragraphs. Your parenthetical citation should come after the closing punctuation mark. When quoting verse, maintain original line breaks. (You should maintain double-spacing throughout your essay.) Long Quote Example: Nelly Dean treats Heathcliff poorly and dehumanizes him throughout her narration: They entirely refused to have it in bed with them, or even in their room, and I had no more sense, so, I put it on the landing of the stairs, hoping it would be gone on the morrow. By chance, or else attracted by hearing his voice, it crept to Mr. Earnshaw's door, and there he found it on quitting his chamber. Inquiries were made as to how it got there; I was obliged to confess, and in recompense for my

cowardice and inhumanity was sent out of the house. (Bronte 78) Use this article to write a in-text citation for a short quote and for a long quote.

Theme Theme is defined as a main idea or an underlying meaning of a literary work that may be stated directly or indirectly. It is an opinion expressed on a subject.

Minor theme, on the other hand, refers to an idea that appears in a work briefly and gives way to another minor theme.

Subject-Verb Agreement Presentation Created by Mr. Schmitt Basic Explanation Subject-Verb Agreement is when the subject of the sentence, also known as the noun (person, place, thing), corresponds with the verb (action) in the sentence. Singular vs. Plural Verbs Verbs do not form their plurals by adding an s as nouns do. In order to determine which verb is singular and which one is plural, think of which verb you would use with he or she (singular) and which verb you would use with they (plural). Singular: He walks,______ jumps , ______. Plural: They walk, ________ swim, ____________. Rule # 1

If the subject is singular then the verb is singular. If the subject is plural then the verb is plural. Examples Mike (singular) is the captain of the baseball team. They (plural) are going for a walk. The dog (singular) ______ happy to go on a walk. The students (plural) ______ going to the football game. Rule # 2 Use a singular verb after: each, neither, everyone, everybody, nobody, and someone.

Examples Everybody ran to the ticket booth. Each of the cars includes a radio and mp3 player. Rule # 3 When using as well as, except, in addition to, no less than, and with, the subject before these phrases determines the number. Examples AT&T (singular), in addition to, Verizon is releasing a new smart phone. The iPods (plural), in addition to other mp3 devices, include internal video cameras and headphones.

Lets Practice! The boys on the swim team is/are going to the assembly. In the summer, John plays/play basketball three times a week. Each of the members plan/plans to vote on Monday. Before every game, the girls varsity basketball team watch/ watches film on the opponents. The principal, in addition to the rest of the staff, make / makes decisions regarding school policies.
