1st hour–after a quick real-life exercise involving 1984 we’ll start viewing American Dreamz…It’s a satire for sure!
Honors–We’ll cover sound devices in poetry today as well as a reviewr, if on allusion. Then we’ll look at a ton of poems, figure them out (or not), and learn to annotate. Sound boring? It’s not–I fill most of the pieces with music I like (therefore it’s good). : )
Remember, your 40-line poem is due Monday. Write about something you’re passionate about, but don’t make it too obvious, of course. Be poetic! Don’t forget that rubric I posted earlier.
If you want to revise your paper because you scored under a 40, conference with me at some point and turn it in soon. (I’m busy with improv club after school today, but before/after any other day works).
