Thursday, May 31st

We started with a quiz on the theme of today’s class.  Lets just say that it behooves you to stay in class until you are dismissed.  Speaking of which, PUNCTUALITY is an expectation, and should you fail to meet this standard, DO NOT DISTURB THE CLASS as you enter.  NO MORE HALL WANDERING.

We discussed the dilemmas in chapters 8-11 and wrote our last “fan fiction” entry on a dilemma your characters face.  Phoebe, Josie, Dylon and Sai are the editors who must post their entry by 3:30 p.m. Friday, June 1st.

We went over the Creative Project options. Please fill in the Project Proposal, especially with the quotations from the novel that inspire your project.  You may create your own option if you do not want to pick from the seven choices I offered.  The Project is due on June 14th.

The last in class essay on The Chrysalids will take place on June 12th.

Tomorrow is JUNE 1ST.  ALL LATE work must be in by 12:22 p.m. or it will NOT be accepted.  No LATE WORK will be accepted in the last three weeks of classes. You need to meet deadlines.

Please read chapters 12-13 for next class.

We watched two clips that dealt with the use of fear to control people, and we connected this to the fear of the mutants in Waknuk as we discussed chapters 4-5.  We went over a number of vocabulary words such as:  precepts (10), mutant( 23), implacable (28), ethics (40).  You will need to know these words.

Congratulations to Michi for editing the winning entry of the Fan Fiction from last class.

The editors for today’s Fan Fiction are Evan, Sai, Tyler, and Steven.  Your editing must be posted on the comments below by no later than 3:30 p.m. Thursday, May 24th.
