Complete the DPS Day 1 handout and answer #8 separately in essay form You may use "I" but please use paragraphs and evidence from the film. You will hand in worksheet and essay. Caroline, there is also a handout in the door that you should annotate for theme and character of Keating revealed.
Having created a thesis in class that reflects HW #7 and how it applies to THe Lord of the Flies, you started a "JOURNEY MAP" in class which will reveal your thesis as either a beginning or an end. Along the route, point out stops, roadblocks, starts, deadends, detours, symbols, imagery, themes, characters that help your journey move along. On big paper. Ross, Clara, and Dougie, I placed the big paper in the door folder, or you can tape two pieces of computer paper together. This is a way to think through the entire novel through your thesis lens. Next class, we will organize and write the essay.
After having reviewed all of your freewrites and other work, you completed the green card, "I Find Myself Returning To..." This card should reveal a key point that has been nagging at you or shocking you or making you wonder. Your job is to turn the idea/s in the green card into a tight, thoughtful and specific thesis statement, which will be the purpose of your upcoming paper.
Read one or more of the following articles (or find a more recent news event that can be linked to Lord of the Flies) and write a one page, typed, single spaced response. In your response, come up with a controlling idea or position statement and support it with evidence from the article, the novel, and/or the experiments.
Lawsuit Over Drowning Joins a Tide to Chinese Courts
Coach Says He Knew of N0 Hazing
Lord of the Flies Savages; Gang of Children Tortured Teenager
Complete the Simpsons worksheet.
Watch "The Lottery": What has been changed and what effect does it have? Does the film capture Jackson's purpose and techniques? Why or why not? Respond with specifics from both the film and the short story. Write a thoughtful response using well organized paragraphs.
Watch "The Hangman" (1964) and think about "The Lottery" as you watch. What do these pieces have in common? Develop a controlling idea that supports what "The Hangman" and "The Lottery" BOTH reveal. Write a one page analysis, single spaced, and provide specific support. Use paragraphs to organize.
Finish reading and annotating "The Lottery." Look for repetition, theme, symbol, setting, mood, and pose questions in the margins. We will use these during class. There will be a reading quiz.
Write about a time you were faced with a difficult issue or situation and had to choose whether to speak up or remain silent. What did you do? Why? What was the outcome? Type about one page single spaced; if hand written, please write neatly -- two pages. Please use paragraphs. Proofread! I will call on many to share aloud.
