Remember, I will be out of the building on Thursday at the 2020 MSC Tech Expo, so we will not have any more class.
That said, you still have some assignments in Canvas you need to complete. Please make sure you do that by the end of the week.
Thank you for a great class you guys. I hope you learned some things that will last with you and that you feel it was a good use of your time.
Tomorrow, March 3 is our field trip to the Anchorage Museum.
Please be ready for the following:
- Leaving school at 9:15 - be here by 9:00AM
- Return to school around 2PM
- Bring sack lunch to eat at the museum
- Make sure you have a filled out permission slip on file (or print and bring to trip)
This week we read some stories and watched a Twilight Zone piece that discussed the ideas of equality and individualism.
Complete Human Exceptionalism in Canvas
Today we discussed To Build a Fire and how it is an example of literary naturalism. We also discussed the importance of character growth in these stories. We discussed the fact that characters grow, even if they do reach a demise and that we can find humanity and our own story in some of what they experience.
We also discussed the following:
This next week or so, we are looking into Naturalism in the literary context.
I am really sorry. I found out that our An Open Boat story was printed wrong too. I thought it was right. I didnt get your homework up. Here is what I would like. If you can just have To Build a Fire read with Talking to the Text done, that would be perfect.
Thanks and I will be on it more after tomorrow.
