“Margaret Sanger.” Wikipedia. Wikimedia Foundation, 12 Mar. 2014. Web. 7 Dec. 2014. Very useful, has a ton of info on it. Especially good for discovering books on my topic (through the bibliography at the bottom of the page) and other sources of information. Not good for a brief overview and is pretty dry. Really good if you’re looking for detail though.   “Margaret Sanger.” Bio. A&E Television Networks, 2014. Web… Read More

NotN Assesment

So first of all a huge gigantic THANK YOU to all the grade nines that planned this thing. It was only when I got home and looked back on the night that I thought ‘Wait, who did the food again? And what about the guest tables and name tags and-’. And then I realized it had been the grade nines, and that I hadn’t even noticed because I was so.. Read More

The Final Speech (document of learning)

I’ve decided to post this after Night of the Notables, because my final draft was what I preformed on stage last night. Sure, I had a ‘final’ draft before I stepped out of the wings, but whatever words I accidentally switched or replaced during my time on stage was the true final combination of words I would use. It was my final performance. it was my final NotN. It was.. Read More

Alexander Sanger Interview

So this year, I was extremely lucky to get an interview on my first try, with none other than Margaret Sanger’s grandson, Alexander Sanger, who also happens to be the Chair of the International Planned Parenthood Council. We decided to hold this interview over email, and this was the result:   Out of everything Margaret Sanger did, which do you think had the greatest effect on the world, and why?.. Read More

Eminent Draft no. 2

(Walks onto stage with nurse bag/box) *sighs* Who could imagine that an unwanted child could cause so much pain and harm to a woman? Being a nurse for the working class, I see so many horrible injuries women inflict upon themselves just because they couldn’t support another child. And it truly pains my heart to see this, because I know that these unwanted pregnancies, and in turn these injuries, could.. Read More

Rough Draft for Eminent Speech

Who could imagine that an unwanted child could cause so much pain and harm to a woman? Being a nurse for the working class, I see so many horrible injuries women inflict upon themselves because they couldn’t support another child. And it truly pains my heart to see this, because I know that these unwanted pregnancies, and in turn these injuries, could be so easily prevented! I have the knowledge.. Read More

SFU Trip 2014 (Pictures coming soon to a theater near you)

Last year we went to the VPL; this year, it was the SFU library. I started out this trip looking for information- on my eminent person, as well as SFU (I’ll have to choose sometime). And of course bonding with all the lovely TALONS. I wanted to capture this trip through photos; last year I took the photo 11 class and really enjoyed it, so why not? As I’m writing.. Read More

Eminent 2014-Meet Margaret Sangar

Another year, another eminent person, and I’m actually excited this time! Well, not that I wasn’t excited last time, but as Mr. Jackson so wonderfully explained it- sometimes we mistake excitement for nervousness. I’m not entirely sure why I’ve identified as excited rather than nervous this year- maybe it was the success of last year’s eminent, maybe it’s because I know what to expect, maybe it’s because I’m very interested..
