Poetry Workshop: Today: Kreitzburg and Cunningham. For Wednesday: comments and annotations for Kozar and Blackham.

Fiction Workshop: Today we workshopped Jonnah, Rhyan, and Rosemary. Please have, at a minimum, Jenna, Winkle, and Abigail ready for Wednesday.

7th/8th Grade: You turned in your Catcher flash fiction and we heard several entries — nicely-done. Then we turned our attention to drama. We ran through the Shel Silverstein one-act play “No Skronking,” and talked about:

1. The three things every play needs. A dramatic question (and answer); conflict; and some sort of visual element.

2. Basic stage directions. (Stage right/left; downstage and upstage; house right/left)

I gave you copies of the Oscar Wilde play The Importance of Being Earnest. We are going to watch the best film version of this play next week. Read it over and bring your copy to follow along!

Family Values: 

BatCat: Good work today. Keep it up.

7th Grade: Did an Exquisite Corpse activity, then shared.

Survey: CNF: Today we did a second partner interview, asking questions and doing a short sketch of your partner — this time focusing on physical details:

1. How they look.

2. How they talk. (Pet expressions, tone of voice, etc.)

3. How they act. (Movements, habits, gestures, etc.)

You gave me your sketches at the end of class; I’ll return them Thursday with some comments.

I also gave out questions for our interview with Mrs. Serra next Tuesday. You will ask the questions with your name in parenthesis (everyone has at least two), and we will go in the order indicated.
