Monday, March 27th

We started King Lear today with a discussion about birth order, labelling, favoritism, and dysfunctional family dynamics as we met the characters in the dramatis personae.  We read and discussed I.i.1-55.  We also wrote a “flattery exercise” so that we can identify with Goneril, Regan, and Cordelia.  We shall continue with this next class.

Thursday, March 9th

We went over the remaining literary terms you need to know for the Provincial Exam, and then we practised the POETRY SECTION of the test.

We watched a few of the poetry videos you made, and explored a few more poems to wrap up the unit.

We will be starting King Lear when we get back from Spring Break.  Bring your poetry text with you then.  In the meantime, if you need to review any of the poetic devices, refer to the glossary at the back of Themes on the Journey while you still have it.
