Wednesday, Oct. 12th

We finished reading “The Destructors” (157), and then broke into smaller groups to focus on one of the following ideas in the story:  existentialism/nihilism, historical context, symbolism, gangs, leadership.  Each group is presenting their findings to the class.  We have three more presentations next class before we move on to the next story.

Your REVISED SPEECH is due on Friday.

If you are posting on the blog to boost your mark on the annotations, you must do so by Friday, Oct. 14th.  Anything posted after Friday will be ignored.

  1. I Have a Dream :

    “With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope.” This is an example of a Metaphor

  2. I Have a Dream:

    “Go back to Mississippi, go back to , go back to South Carolina, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern city, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed.”

    Great example of Repetition

  3. TIME’S UP!

    • I thought on your blog you said all posts after Friday would be ignored. I didn’t assume you meant even the ones posted on Friday.

      • If only you had the school app, you would have gotten the notification that 8:45 is the cut off.

      • Sorry I did not have the app, would you mind lookin at my email?
