Hello everyone!! So I am having so much fun with my flexible pathways class this year because I get to teach! I am doing an English unit with the 8th graders based around the movie The Dead Poets Society! They are really enjoying it! One of my students wrote Carpe Diem on her wrist and a lot of the others have come up to tell me how much they love the movie It is really fun to see their reactions, and it made me want to post some more quotes! So I will be posting a quote from the movie every day that I teach for a while!
This quote is in my opinion one of the very best. It describes exactly how I feel about reading, and it is just perfection!! It is also from one of my favorite movies, The Dead Poets Society, which gave me a new perspective on life. There are so many quotable moments from this movie, so you will probably see a bunch more!
Hello Lovely Human Beings! So this is a poem from 10 Thing I Hate About You, which is based on The Taming of the Shrew, which I am reading in class right now, I am adding the link to the video because it’s a really good scene and everyone should watch the movie if they haven’t!!
So here is the poem in written form!!
I hate the way you talk to me,
and the way you cut your hair.
I hate the way you drive my car,
I hate it when you stare.
I hate your big dumb combat boots
and the way you read my mind.
I hate you so much it makes me sick,
it even makes me rhyme.
I hate the way you’re always right,
I hate it when you lie.
I hate it when you make me laugh,
even worse when you make me cry.
I hate it when you’re not around,
and the fact that you didn’t call.
But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you,
not even close…
not even a little bit…
not even at all.
And here is the video!!
PS: I JUST FIGURED OUT HOW TO PUT VIDEOS IN!! So I am really excited about that, just so you know!
If you love this movie, like and comment your favorite scene or character!! Have a great day!
XOXO ~ Moriah
Hello lovely humans!! I ADORE The Dead Poets Society! It is just sooooooo amazing and I just love it!! So if you haven’t seen it, stop what your doing and go do that! This poem is from the last scene and I won’t spoiler but its so good and the feels and I cry and I just thought that it would be a good idea, so here ya go!
O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done,
The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won,
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;
But O heart! heart! heart!
O the bleeding drops of red,
Where on the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.
O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills,
For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding,
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
Here Captain! dear father!
This arm beneath your head!
It is some dream that on the deck,
You’ve fallen cold and dead.
My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still,
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will,
The ship is anchor’d safe and sound, its voyage closed and done,
From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won;
Exult O shores, and ring O bells!
But I with mournful tread,
Walk the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.
