After the essays were returned, along with your percentage for Term 3, we started watching Gattacca.  You have one last opportunity to boost your Term 3 mark by taking notes on the parallels and connections between the film and the novel, The Chrysalids.  Some connections are obvious.  Others are more subtle and require THINKING.  Do write your 20 points on paper though we will be presenting the answers aloud starting next class.

Thursday, May 25th

We worked through chapters 6-7 today focusing on Uncle Axel’s tales of the world beyond Waknuk.  We considered how what is “right” or “true” sometimes depends on one’s perspective.  We also met the inhabitants of the earth 100 years after our fan fiction takes place.

In class, we read the short story “There Will Come Soft Rains” and wrote down three parallels between the short story and our novel.

After meeting the “future mutant inhabitants,” we picked one, created a portmanteau as a name for him/her, and wrote the “Definition of Man” (refer to page 13) from this mutant’s perspective.  This was handed in at the end of class.

Please read chapters 8-9 for next class.
