Looking forward to round 2 tomorrow. Fun way to deal with MLA.

Alyssa D said...

hahaha I rather enjoyed working with Anna. We pretty much rock. We both left singing Eldorado thanks to that darn car though =P

Stephanie Marie said...

I missed this day in class, helpful to see the outline. Thinking that MLA was fun? lol

I missed out on round one... My child had a cough and was unable to go to daycare, so I had to stay home. :( but, Janet told me it was fun. I am not missing out on round two!

Courtney said...

Looking forward to round two! This game is super fun! and helps us get better familar with MLA. I hope our team wins!

I think this clip is one of the best around to prove the point that competition is key. I mean honestly I still don't know how Mr. Peters gets everyone amped up for MLA.

Steve said...

This is such an awesome way to learn and reinforce the use of MLA format! It's so competitive! My group has fallen behind the lead by only two points, and it will be very difficult to catch up. Good thing i spent the last two days preparing! ;)

That's right everyone..."Put down that coffee!" "Coffee's for closers!"
Hang in there guys, we can make it. I really like the MLA Death Match. It's fun to compete with each other for extra credit, or the Eldorado. I can't believe my group was so far ahead the first day, and we fell so far behind the second day. I had a feeling that would happen. Oh well, it was still a lot of fun.

Such a FUN way to making MLA (snore!) exciting! My team did come in 2nd place for the 11 30 class and I will say 2nd place isnt half bad...we all could use some steak knives!

This is a funny clip. MLA death match can get pretty intense, especially for five bonus points or one free absence.

Brittany8 said...

I think MLA death match is awesome. I enjoyed it last quarter and i enjoyed it this quarter even though my team got fired FIRST! I already had steak knives anyways!

Justin Burton said...

I wish that we could do other deathmatches for other things than MLA. I think that it would really be fun to have a World is Flat deathmatch with the winner being the one who gets the Eldorado, hybrid of course...

You played this in english 101 also. This is such a funny scene! Good acting! I cant believe he went off on them like that but "put that coffee down" is super funny!
