This week, next week…

1st hour–The Scary Headliners posters were great!  Good job on those.  Remember, the next 1984 quiz is Tuesday over chapter IV-VII.  If you’re having questions, go ahead and comment on here or shoot me an email and I will gladly help you out!

Today in class we read (and listened to) a very famous short story called, “The Veldt.”  We identified the satire’s purpose and the traits of a dystopia.  Here’s a link to the reading.

Honors:  We’ve been watching They Spoke Out: American Voices Against the Holocaust.  The new assignment due on the 20th is called “LONIP.”  Students are to write a 2-3 page memoir double-spaced with an MLA heading about a list of something in their life.  Songs, quotes, movies, shoes, video games, girl/boyfriends, pals, pets, vacations, etc.  The focus should be on YOU, not the list.  The list is just a way to show how you’ve evolved or kept a consistency through your lives.  If you’re funny, keep it light, if you’re more on the serious side, let the tone reflect that too.  There’s a lot of creative freedom in the format here.  We’ll have a little time to write in the writing center towards the end of the next week, but we’ll also be *editing/proofreading so that’ll be important too.

*Soon we’ll be working in teams to revise the short stories from my creative writing class.

Thank you to everyone who made it to conferences last night!
