On Monday (1/28), we read pages 27-32 (the video on this page is the section we read) and did Reading Journal #2. On Tuesday (1/29), we discussed chapters 1-3 and the things we noticed. We added to our reading journals. On Thursday (1/31), we read pages 32-45 in class, watched these two videos, discussed them, and worked on a reading journal for the section we read. On Friday (2/1), we finished chapter 4 and continued the reading journal from yesterday. All the videos for Night can be found here.
Note: Both classes did slightly different activities due to the different methods they chose for reading literature together as a class. So read carefully to find your class.
On Monday (1/28), 1st period finished the movie version and did Reading Journal #1 (Which of the characters did you like best? Which did you relate to most? Which character did you like the least? Which characters did you pity?). In 4th period, we read all of Willy's lines in isolation from pages 2-12, then 15-20 and wrote down what we thought of him based on what he said. The last writing question was to picture the man you just described as your father and write about how it would feel to have him for a father. 1st period did that on Tuesday (1/29). On Tuesday (1/29) in 4th period and Wednesday (1/30) in 1st period, we did the same for Linda, looking at the italicised stage directions particularly. Also on Wednesday, 1st period started the DOAS Character Video. On Thursday (1/31), 4th period looked at the stockings and Ben as two symbols and started the DOAS Character Video.
On Monday (1/28), 3rd period finished 30 Days and did the writing response. 6th period read a short text from an anthology of SF writers and answered some questions (summary, purpose, audience and repeated words/ideas/phrases). On Tuesday (1/30), we listened to a podcast from This American Life and started talking about techniques for podcasting. In 6th period (and this will happen on Wednesday for 3rd period), each group made a document called "Principles of Podcasting." On block day (Wednesday 1/30 or Thursday 1/31), we finished the This American Life episode and started planning our own podcasts. You should have a concept by the end of block period, and start figuring out what needs to get recorded.
