Tuesday, December 22

December 22, 2015

Violence: Gave out packets of final projects. You were assigned responses to two pieces. These responses will be due on Tuesday, Jan 12. I also want everyone to read the entire packet by that date, just for discussion purposes.

We will take a look at King Lear when we return to this class Jan. 5. We will also come back to those “Pornoviolence” essays by Tom Wolfe, which we haven’t discussed yet — stay tuned.

Radio: Work day. Please let me know if you need anything or have any issues.

Siren: Got the paper out — nice job everyone! Make sure your January copy is in.

Style: Today some of you shared your poems inspired by “Twas the night.”

There is no exactly style for the Tuesday after break; instead, it’s an amnesty day. Style 12.22.15 – Amnesty. Take advantage of this opportunity!! See you after break.

Middle School: Five aspects of character building:

  1. How someone looks/dresses
  2. How someone speaks/sounds
  3. How someone moves
  4. How someone reacts to things
  5. How someone thinks (about life; about the world around them)

and then “Night of the Meek.”

Survey: Combined: Sonnet writing! If you didn’t finish but still want to be entered in the competition, you have until 9 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 29, to email me your sonnet.
