Hello All!

If there is ever a question about homework (assignments/due dates) and it is not updated on the blog, THEN E-MAIL MR. FLYGT OR  SEE HIM BEFORE SCHOOL.

Never be satisfied.  Continue to exhaust all options until you cannot do anything else at all.  Please take this and make it a life long skill.  My goal is be updated as much as possible.  I, like you, need to constantly improve.

SAM COOKE – An In Depth Look

visit www.vimeo.com.  in the search bar, type “Sam Cooke Biography.”  watch the clip and notate anything you think that is important.

now, create 2 Musical Madness for the following clips.

follow up question: who is Roy Hargrove?

***If Lane Tech is in First Place with the GLEE competition, then you will all gain 100 extra credit points.

***If you come to school tomorrow (Friday 10/14/11) and respond in the following manner, you will get a treat and 10 pts extra credit.

Manner:  Question asked by Mr. Flygt, “How are you today?”

Answer:  “Fine, why thank you.  May we please sing today?!”

THE ANSWER MUST BE WITH ENTHUSIASM!!!!!!
