Hi, Junior English Kids,
If you missed class today, we did the following:
STUDENTS SUBMITTED THEIR EVALUATION OF THE FIVE PARAGRAPH ESSAY that was given to them on Tuesday.
1. We reviewed Short Story terminology by looking at at short story entitled "The Alchemist." If you were in A4 on Tuesday, we started the story in class, and then finished it today (Thursday). We reviewed "Direct" and "Indirect" characterization, the different types of irony, foreshadowing, the purposes of a short story, and the different conflicts present in the short story genre
2. We watched a "Twilight Zone" movie entitled "The Chaser." I wanted each student to have a visual image of the short story that was used for their quiz.
3. After the film, each student took their short story quiz. Students were asked to use "The Chaser" in correlation with the questions on the quiz.
4. We corrected the quiz in class.
