Block G – English 11 – We began with some silent reading and then had our third Lit. Circle. There is a copy of the agenda on the Handouts page. Today you discussed conflict and theme in relation to your novel. You were to make notes as you discussed and then hand those notes in by the end of the class.
Blocks E & H – English 12 – We began a film study that we will also use for an assignment with our novels. We began watching Finding Forrester a 2000 film that combines basketball, literature and Sean Connery – What could be better than that!? We will watch the second half of the film next class. This also means that our final Lit Circle has been moved to Thursday, June 2nd.
Block F – Literature 12 – Today we read Ulysses, by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Sonnet 43 (How do I love thee?), by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and My Last Duchess, by Robert Browning. There were e review worksheets to complete over the weekend.
Next class we will read Song, by Emily Brontë, Dover Beach by Matthew Arnold, and The Darkling Thrush by Thomas Hardy.
