We finished writing conferences, read this article (found purpose and audience and turned it in) and completed this assignment. Your revised essay is due the Friday after break (12/1).
We finished and turned in this assignment, and started working on BWP 2.
We took a quiz on pages 1-60 in Indian Country, and you need to read to page 140 by Monday, 11/26. We had our final Socratic Seminar for the Crucible unit. If you missed it, you can write a one page summary of your thoughts about these questions: Could what happened in the Crucible happen again? Are humans born good/bad/blank? Has your opinion changed in this unit? On Friday, we watched this. Part 2.
We started working on the final unit of the year. Everyone chooses a topic relating to humour, and prepares a one-class period lesson on it. It must include a "text" of some kind, as well as a class discussion and writing activity. We will start the presentations after break. Here is the collaborative brainstorm notes.
