Friday, Oct. 7th

The first draft of your speech was returned to you.  Please revise it and hand in the good copy on Friday, Oct. 14th.  If you would like to discuss it, come in at lunch or after school.

We went over EXISTENTIALISM and NIHILISM as we started reading and discussing “The Destructors” (157).  Having read part one, post any observations you have on existentialist/nihilistic ideas in the story, gangs, leadership, historical context,  and symbolism to THE DESTRUCTORS
