Today was a shortened class due to the Terry Fox Run. We did our silent reading and then finished watching The Lottery. I really like how the ending of the movie comes full circle back to Jason’s father in the state mental institution. The charade that the townspeople put on is pretty impressive as well.
Next class we will be reading Leo Tolstoy’s The Three Questions – in his original form (in translation) and in a children’s picture book form. How do you think these two genres will differ?
The term for Tolstoy’s story that we will learn is parable – you might want to look that one up 🙂
Have a great weekend everyone!
