It has been a pleasure working with you all these past 8 weeks! I can't believe my time here has finally come to an end. I am truly going to miss you all. Good luck with the rest of high school.
Remember, let no one doubt or belittle you because you have the ability to achieve great things.
"Let your soul stand cool and composed before a million universes."
This is what you have to know for tomorrow's open book test:
*Be able to translate quotes from each act of the play.
*Be able to characterize people in the quotes you see on the test.
*Be able to connect the quote to a theme or motif.
*Be able to find literary terms in the quote.
We discussed motifs, themes, and literary terms TODAY, as we have before, to refresh your memories.
STUDY. You will only have one period to complete this test.
I am excited about this show; I have heard RAVE reviews, so I hope you're ready. If you are reading this after seeing the show, comment to let us know what you thought. Think about:
Hey! What the heck is a sonnet?!
A sonnet is:
We discussed the Act V questions in class and you all got 100 if you did the questions! Yayyy! Also, we identified parts of plot and what each of these contains: exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution.
Exposition: characters introduced, grabs attention, sets the "scene" of the book, relationships established
Rising action: Problems are arising (CONFLICTS)
Climax: the tables turn, the turning point of the story, overall focus changes
Falling action: conflicts being resolved
Resolution: Questioning resolved, all of the ends are tied ---> CLOSURE (sometimes)
Remember, in every Shakespearean play, Act I = exposition, Act II = rising action, Act III = climax, Act IV = falling action, Act V = resolution.
P.S. Lion King = Hamlet. Woahhhhh
Have a great weekend,
Today in class we began reading Act V. Please comment on the previous post for your vocabulary assignment due by midnight!
Homework: FINISH THE PLAY!
Your next ORB project will be of the historical fiction/non-fiction genre. Also, we will be completing a group writing activity next week and you will also have a chance to work on your sonnets.
Today we worked on the 2 vocabulary terms per act. You may comment on this post for your vocabulary assignment that is due Thursday by midnight.
We will continue working on vocabulary next class! So far, I'm hearing a lot of great finds!
Homework for tonight: Read the rest of Act IV and complete the questions in the packet.
Begin thinking about your sonnets!!
You all received your ORB 1 projects. These will be due November 1st.
