SOPH ENG I HOMEWORK
HW #5Read Kurt Vonnegut's "Harrison Bergeron" and be ready for a quiz!
HW #4Read through the "What is Conformity" packet. As you read, stop and write in comments where the article echoes ideas seen in "The Lottery," "The Ones Who Work Away from Omelas," and "The Hangman." Use post-its for more space. Be prepared to enlighten the class! Everyone will share!
HW #3Would you walk away from Omelas? Explain in a thoughtful, one page composition typed, single spaced. Use quotes from the story to craft your response.
HW #2Read and annotate "Those Who Walk Away from Omelas" as we did for "The Lottery." There will be a reading quiz.
HW #1Write 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.

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.
