Task #1 – Take the vote below before we begin class today.

Task #2 –  According to the vote, many of you have stated that the introductory video that we began on Friday is worth finishing. So we will be finishing this assignment and moving on.

Task #3 – Now we will be utilizing our Costa’s levels of questioning to develop and answer questions about the introductory material on the Yakuza.

Task #4 – Today will be a shortened day due to Homeroom. As a result after we develop and begin answering our questions about the Yakuza we will begin our Ticket Out the Door earlier than normal.

Ticket out the Door:

Go to, type in room name “a89559b4″, then type in your first name and last initial. Answer the questions that follow and hit “submit”. Then log out. Today’s teacher question: “Why do you think the Yakuza put such an importance on tattooing?”
