Ms. Phillips hw 3/21

12th grade Eng. Lit.: On Mon. you will get a handout to help you analyze Chapter 5.  After that, you are free to enjoy Catch-22 on your own ( or not).  I am changing the routine.  On Mon. you will come to class having read at least the first chapter of your Independent Reading book.  As you read, make notes of literary elements and techniques you encounter in the book.  Each day you will have an in-class writing assignment related to your book.  The aim is for you to understand how these elements and techniques not only structure a work of literature, but also how they support the beauty, value, and meaning in the work.  Long-term, the aim is for your interaction with this and any text to lead to greater insights into the world, others, and yourself.  The mission of the class hasn’t changed.

Six of you chose Slaughterhouse-Five for your Independent Reading.  Of the six, four of you were vehemently opposed to exerting any effort with Catch-22.  I am giving you this last chance to switch books.  If you couldn’t or wouldn’t handle Catch-22, you will have a hard time with Vonnegut’s book.  You decide.  To be fair, the other two students will also have a chance to switch books.


Media Studies: On Mon. you will get today’s test as a take-home to be due Tues.

Other Eng. Lit. classes: We will wrap up Chapter 5 on Mon.  Make sure to get notes if you are absent.

Eng. Comp.: You will have an opportunity to work with your groups on Mon.  You DO NOT have to memorize your  script.  You WILL NOT be judged according to your acting ability (or lack thereof).   If you are too shy to speak, YOU CAN have a non-speaking part-you could even be an inanimate object.  YOU MAY use props, but you don’t have to.  IT IS O.K. to change the scene in the book a little-but not to the point where you rewrite it – stay with the author’s general intent.  We will clear a performance space in the room.  When you block your scenes, make safety a priority- especially those of you playing Red Guards.  NO METHOD ACTING!
