READING LOGS due FRIDAY with 12 hours and parent signature.
CE Word parts quiz on FRIDAY.
In class we discussed satire, read an edited version of "A Modest Proposal" by J. Swift, and wrote thinking notes for each paragraph.
Write an Identify, Verb, Finish the Thought sentence to summarize the reading.
Write one page in your journal about a problem in your school or community that you have observed. You do not need to write in the satirical form or offer a solution, but use the power of observation that a satirist would.
We passed out copies of Dr. J and Mr. H and read the first few pages to get to know Mr. Utterson, the narrator. We wrote a journal entry answering the question: Is Mr. Utterson a good friend? Why or why not?
HW: see above
Speeches due tomorrow. Make sure you have been 3 and 4 minutes and have practice with your note cards so that your transitions are clear and movement and gestures are planned and support your speech.
We shared our favorite prompts and discussed the possibility for our longer works.
