In American Cultures today we began to watch a movie–Fat Man & Little Boy–about the Manhattan Project of WWII. It appears that we will do this sporadically throughout the preceding chapters of the 1920s, the depression and the new deal. I could see this causing a headache for me later on when I take on all of the classes. I would rather save this movie for the chapter on WWII. But the whole course is not mine yet.
Interestingly enough, Mr. Geisler’s neighbor worked on the Manhattan project and might come in as a guest speaker this year. That would rock!
In Nav, Mr. Deemer detailed several different types of investments. Stocks, bonds, mutual funds etc. I observed. I seem to get along quite well with his 7th period class. I’m pretty sure I’ll be picking up their class first.
