Viewing and annotating Everest film

and U.S./Japan ASTER Science Team
Caption from NASA: On Friday, April 26, 2014, an avalanche
on Mount Everest killed at least 13 Sherpa guides.
 NASA Terra spacecraft looked toward the northeast,
 with Mount Everest center, and Lhotse, the fourth-highest
 mountain on Earth, on the skylineto right center.
Goals: Looking at risk and rewards on a larger scale, while tracking ethos, logos, and pathos in a film.

Setting up our notes
Film viewing


  • Use tables in your English Journal to track a few things as we watch the film. 
  • Use a two column table to list risks and rewards you see mentioned in the film. 
  • Use a three row table to note examples of ethos, logos, and pathos in the film. 
  • I will show you examples in class. 

Viewing Questions:

  1.  What are some of the risks associated with climbing Mt. Everest?
  2. What are some of the rewards associated with climbing Mt. Everest?
  3.  Do you think the rewards outweigh the risks? Why/why not?
  4. How do the film makers use ethos, logos, and pathos to support their messages? 
Book review #8 due tomorrow. Make sure it is at the TOP of your Book Reviews Document.
