This is the FIFTH Extensive Listening Log opportunity of the session – make sure you talk to your teacher about when your ELL is due. Most ELLs are due next Thursday, AUGUST 14th.

1) WESLI Documentary Viewing: Damnation

Please join us to watch an amazing documentary about the environmental destruction caused by dams across the nation.

This powerful film odyssey across America explores the sea change in our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers. Dam removal has moved beyond the fictional Monkey Wrench Gang to go mainstream. Where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life, giving salmon and other wild fish the right of return to primeval spawning grounds, after decades without access. DamNation’s majestic cinematography and unexpected discoveries move through rivers and landscapes altered by dams, but also through a metamorphosis in values, from conquest of the natural world to knowing ourselves as part of nature.

When: Tuesday, August 12th @ 1 and 3pm

Location: Room 102

 

If you would like to attend another event for your extensive listening opportunity, please ask your teacher.
