We defied Big Brother today with holiday celebrations. Please read Part One, chapters 7-8 for the first class back from the holidays.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
We discussed remaining points from Part I chapters 1-5, so because we did not finish chapters 6, there is no need to read ahead unless you want to do so. We read “The Censors” in class and looked for parallels to Winston and Syme in the novel. We also watched a clip from Pink Floyd’s The Wall, looking for parallels to the novel.
We shall continue discussing Part I chapters 5-6 next class. Please write DIARY #4.
We discussed more of the Appendix on Newspeak, and Part I chapters 1-2 today. Please write Diary Entry #2 on the ideas we discussed today. REACT/RESPOND to these ideas, and CONNECT them to things that are happening in the real world. Keep a running list of the WORKS CITED using the MLA format.
Read Part One, chapters 3-4 for next class.
