Welcome back from break, everyone. I trust you are all well rested and ready for the next chapter in the school year. Hard to believe, but we’re almost finished the book. Almost.
- We left off with Romeo and Juliet – Act III is now complete. What ever will happen between Romeo and Juliet? Is their love doomed? Will Juliet be forced to marry Paris? How will the Friar untangle the massive web of deceit he’s been spinning? Will it be in time to save the two young lovers? Or will Juliet move on to bigger and better things (like Paris …or Harry from One Direction?) Stay tuned.
- Act IV this week, and maybe more. We’ll see.
- Please bring your Echoes 11 books with you tomorrow to class.
- We have completed watching the Life Of Pie. If you were absent approved for the ending of the video, we can make arrangements to catch you up. IF, however, your absence was NOT approved for Friday’s class, then you’re on your own. It’s your responsibility to keep up with the material, and the video is an option for your literary writing piece (essay) and therefore has curriculum importance in achieving outcomes.
- Tomorrow, we’ll read The Boat. Yes, I’m aware you’ve read the story in 521A, but like all good literature, film, or music, sometimes when you read, view, or listen respectively to something again, you get more out of it. This is the aim for tomorrow’s class.
- Your literary essay assignment was given to you on the Thursday before the break. The idea was to mull the information over. Tomorrow I’ll speak more to the assignment.
- Due date for the essay will be Wednesday April 3rd, 2013. You’ll have class time to work on it.
- We’ll begin Macbeth on April 3rd.
Enjoy the remainder of the break. See you all tomorrow.
