Question 11: If this one implies that officers will adjust their behaviors in regards to racism and use of excessive force while out on calls, I say yes, I‘m all for it. However, if you are back at the station doing desk work of some sort, I do not need you to show me those tasks.

Q12: Yes to the 100K.
Because there‘s no restriction as to how I could use my money to make me healthier while holding on to the 40 lbs.
100 lbs is asking too much.

BookNAround I can get paid to put on weight? I‘ve been doing it for free. 😂 5d
ljuliel #12. DOGGONE. I‘ve put on 40 pounds in the past few years. Wish someone would‘ve offered me the money to do it. I wouldn‘t put on any more. It‘s much easier to Add than Subtract. 5d
Amiable @BookNAround LOL! 😄 5d

#ucflae3414f19 “Horton and the Kwuggerbug and More Lost Stories” is a Modern Fantasy picture book that has a collection of stories, that were lost but recently found, by Dr. Seuss. This book is funny, creative and extremely entertaining. For this book, I am going to do a LC and I would use the UDL 8.3. The ESOL strategy #6 which is monitoring student comprehension.

Alexush Since, this book has multiple Dr. Seuss stories I chose to use https://www.seussville.com/Educators/educatorClassroomResources.php?id=printable... #12 as a web source because this site has multiple activities and lessons for this book and the stories within it. (edited) 2w

Henry's Freedom Box | Ellen Levine
post image
Pickpick

#UCFLAE3414F19 This fiction picture book written by Ellen Levin and illustrated by Kadir Nelson is a dramatic story about how Henry Brown, born a slave, manages to gain his freedom by “mailing” himself to the north. When we first encounter Henry, he is a boy who doesn‘t even know how old he is because records about slaves‘ births are not kept.

ccipriati Henry dreams all the time about being free but that dream seems to keep being pushed farther and farther away. He is first taken away from his family and made to work inside a warehouse. Later on, when he is grown, he gets married and has a family, but, once again, he is separated from his family when they are sold at the slave market. (edited) 3w
ccipriati But his dream stays alive and then one day, while working in the warehouse, he comes up with the brilliant plan of mailing himself to the North to freedom. This book won the Caldecott Medal. This historical fiction book is an amazing read aloud and shared reading book. It is both moving and inspirational and can be used in team teaching with the Social Studies teachers when they are teaching about pre-Civil War life. 3w
ccipriati The UDL Guideline strategy that I have chosen for this book is 3.1 which strategy is intended to activate or supply background knowledge. Make sure that your students know and understand why there were slaves back then and how it has shaped our country.

ccipriati The ESOL Strategy that I picked for this book is #12 that is designed to teach to two objectives, language and content. Teach the students the unfamiliar words mentioned inside the book while also teaching them the content of the story. This book can also be used in a History lesson. (edited) 3w
ccipriati Scholastic has provided a great lesson plan for this book. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/henrys-freedom... 3w
cassandram This book sounds so powerful. Would be a great addition to curriculum during black history month. 2w

#ncbd!!! Took the kids with me today—my son picked up a box of 50 comics for $10. I like the way he shops! My daughter stuck with three older issues—Flash, Ironman & Captain American. My purchases are below—Middlewest #12, Pretty Violent #3, Wonder Woman #81 & Ascender #6 new this week. Also added Paper Girls, Vol. 6 which I somehow missed when it was released earlier this month. I think we are all looking forward to an afternoon of reading!

GatheringBooks awesome picks! what a great bargain! 1mo

White becoming warden at the huge prison Hale and Ramsey landed at...justice ?

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I wasn‘t expecting this!! No, they deserved the death penalty.. 1mo
Karisa I'm against the death penalty. It felt like the book was suggesting that if they had been guilty of killing other whites that would have been the penalty. They better not have gotten out before their sentences were up. Way too callous of crimes. 1mo
CoffeeCatsBooks I know someone has to do that job, but I was kinda sad White ended up there. Those seem like very harsh places. 1mo
mrp27 Seems right that White ended up a warden, seems as if he is fulfilling his destiny. Even the ugliest places on earth with the ugliest of the human race deserve to be treated justly and humanely. Wish there was a warden like White in every prison. I thought it very interesting the jury was willing to sentence Hale and Ramsey to life instead of death. Wonder if the outcome would be different if the victims were white. I'm sad to say I think so. 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @mrp27 I totally agree... 1mo

Was the Getty connection a shock too you ? In 1904, the Gettys moved from Minnesota to Oklahoma. Within two years, he had amassed a fortune. In 1913, George lent his son Jean Paul money to invest in oil wells.1915,JeanPaul had made his first million, the following year George and Jean Paul incorporated the Getty Oil Company, later to become Getty Oil. J Paul known as the richest man ever lived was it Indian stolen fortune ?

Librarybelle I wasn't surprised. I bet there are a lot of stories like this... 1mo
TheBookHippie @Librarybelle I bet it is astounding how many ....horrific. 1mo
CoffeeNBooks @Librarybelle I agree. So sad that so many people in our country's history made money this way. 1mo
mrp27 Wasn't surprised especially after watching the Getty movie and tv show recently. 1mo

The graphic portrayal of a female orgasm,sex scenes are all about love or power. Women have sex for intimacy,men have sex for pleasure...Evelyn and her excitement to prove that women can be sexual didn‘t think how this scene would affect others? She realizes it too late? Celia -when told tells Evelyn she‘s never been Celias .. Are they both wrong in the situation, or is just Evelyn wrong or is just Celia wrong?? Is this the end?

Scochrane26 Think they‘re both wrong. Evelyn should have discussed w/ Celia first. Celia should realize that Evelyn‘s an actor & can separate the situation. 2mo
Karisa I think Evelyn knew this was too big of an opportunity to pass up. She's like an addict with attention and fame. She thought she could just beg for forgiveness. I was surprised that Celia was so strongly against it though too, @Scochrane26 (I think it was because Don was the scene partner). 2mo
Soubhiville @Scochrane26 I agree 100%. As an actress Celia should be able to separate work and real life! But I can understand how hurt she was that Evelyn didn‘t talk to her about it before doing it. Ultimately though, I don‘t blame Evelyn for doing it. I think she‘s right that the scene has potential to be empowering for women. 2mo

kspenmoll I think Evelyn was wrong not to tell her before the shoot. Agee with @Soubhiville @Scochrane26 that Celia should be able to separate acting from real life! Ultimately I too agree that Evelyn doing that scene was empowering; that was her intent. 2mo
Mitch I think they both handled it badly. I think Celia should have better understand of the role of the actor and Evelyn ability to separate fantasy from reality. I also thought it strange of her to be so sure of her demands of her partner professionally and dictating what she felt Evelyn could or couldn‘t do. But then Evelyn so should have handled that conversation differently! 2mo
Sargar114 I think it‘s a bit more complicated for Celia than just her not being able to separate since the partner was Don. If it had been some random actor that Evelyn didn‘t have a prior relationship with, then it‘s a different discussion. But Evelyn had told Celia about how she used to feel for Don so it changes the perspective. I doubt Evelyn had communicated her current feelings to Celia... 2mo
Sargar114 ...As a reader, we know how Evelyn feels, and can see why it meant nothing to her. However, I agree Evelyn should have given Celia the opportunity ahead of time to discuss this. She might‘ve still held on to the relationship. 2mo
Librarybelle If Celia meant as much to Evelyn as Evelyn keeps saying, she should have spoken to Celia about it. I agree with others that Celia also handled the situation badly. I do suspect part of it had to do with Don being the other half of the scene, and it made Celia think back to Evelyn's marriage to Don and maybe even fear that this would rekindle something. 2mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I think that both were wrong... Evelyn for doing it the way she did and Celia for her reaction, which is totally understandable. It could have been handled so much better!! 2mo
mrp27 They were both wrong and both caused the downfall of their relationship. 2mo

“Not to mention the police could come after us” Evelyn explains to Celia. Their relationship really was dangerous for them as same sex relations were illegal until 1976 in California. Did you know this? Can you imagine the fear? “ no one wants to understand people like us” Evelyn tells Celia. Still
true today?

mrp27 Still true but I hope it's getting better. 2mo
Karisa Evelyn portrayed herself as fearless when it was something important to her. I felt like she was just manipulating Celia at this part. Someone has to be the one to breakthrough, why not someone with so much money, fame, beauty, and power as Evelyn? It's true to life but Evelyn sees herself as larger than life. 2mo
Scochrane26 I think Evelyn was scared to lose the money, fame, power, plus the feeling of being liked by Hollywood & fans. She‘s looking for people to love her. I know friends now who are gay but had families before they came out. Because friends & I grew up in the 80‘s/90‘s when it was still not as accepted to come out, I think they didn‘t realize how they felt or felt stuck until recently. 2mo

TheBookHippie @Scochrane26 70s when I grew up it was such a taboo. So many people not allowed to live their lives. Horrible .. 2mo
Soubhiville Whether it‘s better now definitely depends where you live/are, and what type of people you come across. There are places in America where it‘s completely normal to be in a crowd that‘s 1/2 queer, but it only takes one obnoxious homophobe to make everyone uncomfortable or even unsafe. 2mo
EH2018 It is so terrible to not be able to love without fear of intolerance for whatever reason. I have a hard time with labels. Love is love and I believe in fluidity 2mo
Librarybelle I think it's still true today, and I agree with @Soubhiville ...it really depends upon where you live to see whether or not it's acceptable or tolerated. I knew that homosexuality was illegal at that time, and I think this passage provided a good glimpse at how those who feared public ridicule and jail time felt. Again, ploys by studios to make their actors/actresses fit into the “right“ molds. Rock Hudson came to my mind during this scene. 2mo
Soubhiville @EH2018 yes! 💜 2mo
