Students were given their schedules and we went over procedures during the morning extended homeroom time. At 3:40, students went back to homeroom and received the Cobb County folder to go home to parents. Parents should fill out the information and return to the homeroom teacher as soon as possible.

The World Is Flat


I have been doing my homework assignment by listening to this book on the way to school. It is very informative and makes you wonder what will our society and technology be like when our children grow up. In 1988, I was stationed in West Germany with the Army. My only communication to my family and boyfriend (now my husband) was the regular telephone which was about $50 a call or the forever US mail. My mother would cry when she said my name because I was so far from her. In November of 1989, I was home from Germany getting married and the Wall in Berlin came down that month. It was an exciting time! Soon after that event, the cell phones started to become available and email on the computer was affordable and available. Life in Germany would have been better for me if all of this had happened sooner. Being in another country is a cell phone away or typing away. My mother and I could have talked everyday. Now, we could have sent pictures and video everyday.

I am on disc 4 and it is about the number of American vs. foreign students that are getting into math and science fields. Asians and indians are going to school in America to learn all this information and taking over the technology industry. If we don't start doing something fast it will be gone before we know it.

Here is a summary of the book:
History of the world twenty years from now, and they come to the chapter "Y2K to March 2004," what will they say was the most crucial development? The attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11 and the Iraq war? Or the convergence of technology and events that allowed India, China, and so many other countries to become part of the global supply chain for services and manufacturing, creating an explosion of wealth in the middle classes of the world's two biggest nations, giving them a huge new stake in the success of globalization? And with this "flattening" of the globe, which requires us to run faster in order to stay in place, has the world gotten too small and too fast for human beings and their political systems to adjust in a stable manner?

In this brilliant new book, the award-winning New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman demystifies the brave new world for readers, allowing them to make sense of the often bewildering global scene unfolding before their eyes. With his inimitable ability to translate complex foreign policy and economic issues, Friedman explains how the flattening of the world happened at the dawn of the twenty-first century; what it means to countries, companies, communities, and individuals; and how governments and societies can, and must, adapt. The World Is Flat is the timely and essential update on globalization, its successes and discontents, powerfully illuminated by one of our most respected journalists.

"Before 9/11, New York Times columnist Friedman was best known as the author of The Lexus and the Olive Tree, one of the major popular accounts of globalization and its discontents. Having devoted most of the last four years of his column to the latter as embodied by the Middle East, Friedman picks up where he left off, saving al-Qaeda et al. for the close. For Friedman, cheap, ubiquitous telecommunications have finally obliterated all impediments to international competition, and the dawning 'flat world' is a jungle pitting 'lions' and 'gazelles,' where 'economic stability is not going to be a feature' and 'the weak will fall farther behind.' Rugged, adaptable entrepreneurs, by contrast, will be empowered. The service sector (telemarketing, accounting, computer programming, engineering and scientific research, etc.), will be further outsourced to the English-spoken abroad; manufacturing, meanwhile, will continue to be off-shored to China. As anyone who reads his column knows, Friedman agrees with the transnational business executives who are his main sources that these developments are desirable and unstoppable, and that American workers should be preparing to 'create value through leadership' and 'sell personality.' This is all familiar stuff by now, but the last 100 pages on the economic and political roots of global Islamism are filled with the kind of close reporting and intimate yet accessible analysis that have been hard to come by. Add in Friedman's winning first-person interjections and masterful use of strategic wonksterisms, and this book should end up on the front seats of quite a few Lexuses and SUVs of all stripes." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

First Day of School

Today, we started the day with extended homeroom and going over lots of school policies and procedures. In science, I went over the curriculum changes with the students, showed them some neat things in the room, shared with them the things that we do in and out of class, and had introductions with students and teacher. No homework was given.

Welcome Back

It was so nice to meet most of you at the Meet and Greet. Your child will need to know their bus lane & bus number. Your child will be getting their schedule and lots of information the first day. Please take the time to read, go over the information with your child, sign, and turn them in. Get that task out of the way. I look forward to working with you and your child.
