Thursday, May 11th

Your scene performances of King Lear are to be presented on Monday, May 15th.

Today, we started the introduction to Slaughter House Five.  Please read chapter one for next class.

Everyone signed up for a panel presentation date and chapter.  Please have your chapter read by May 17th so that your group can decide on a theme and choose your passages without any duplication.


For the PANEL PRESENTATION, each person will:

  1.  present a PASSAGE ANALYSIS from the chapter on the chosen theme…comment on what the passage is about and how it ties into the theme, the use of language, and the purpose of the passage in context of the novel (25 marks)
  2. present a work of ART that is also on the same theme and explain the connections (15 marks)
  3. lead a class discussion with provocative questions on the theme (10 marks)
  4. write a SYNTHESIS PAPER on the theme using the novel, the art, and the class discussion as sources.  This paper is due the class after your presentation (50 marks).
  5. participate in class discussions to earn 5 marks per class (total of 50 marks).


There are only SIX WEEKS left of English 12.  Please check the I-report list below to make sure that you are passing the course.  All late assignments on the King Lear unit must be in by Friday, May 12th or you will be given a ZERO on it.
