Week of March 20th

After blizzard Stella, our class plans needs adjustment and this week will reflect that. Unfortunately, some of the projects we were working on last week will need to be streamlined. In addition, the end of the Marking Period is quickly approaching. Grades will be finalized on Tuesday, April 4th. Please make sure you check your grade before then and turn in all missing assignments. If I do not have an assignment by that date, it will be a 0. This score on an assignment can significantly lower your grade.

It might be difficult to recall, but we completed our first read of the short story "Thank You Ma'am" last week. Monday will begin with a review of the plot of this story to make sure you understood the characters and the plot during your first read. We will complete a worksheet to reinforce this information. Tuesday we will complete our second read and pick specific parts of the short story to analyze deeply. This will require some deep critical thinking, so please come with your thinking caps ready! Wednesday you will receive a presentation on the impact Langston Hughes, the author of this short story, had on his literary time period, the Harlem Renaissance. We will connect this to contemporary movements and trends in art. This will prepare us for our 3rd read, which we will use to draw connections between this story and other pieces of art you are familiar with.

Last week, we started watching the film Of Mice and Men. We will continue this film this week and have multiple discussions comparing and contrasting it to the novella we read in class. We are going to think critically about what is different between the two versions and, more importantly, why the director would choose to make those changes. We will also look closely at the way each character is portrayed in the film and contrast that to the novella. I look forward to some interesting analysis and discussion on this topic!
