Dear Juniors,

I hope you enjoy your "Fall Break!"

 Your FINAL EXAM was introduced to you today!!

If you missed class today, we completed the following:
1. Your final exam for short stories was explained. I have indicated the two options below. YOUR FINAL is due ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27th; however, when you come to class on TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25th, you need to have a five paragraph essay triangle completed for your chosen film, as we will go to the lab to type your essay. You have two options for the test:

Select one film from the list below and write a five paragraph essay discussing the THREE DIFFERENT TYPES of IRONY found within the film you select. Each body paragraph would focus on a different example of irony found within the film. You must assume that your reader has NO SCHEMA on the film, nor your topic; consequently, you will need to thoroughly explain events within the film.
    • The Others
    • Watcher in the Woods
    • The Village
    • The Sixth Sense
    • What Lies Beneath
    • The Illustionist
    • The Prestigue
    • Lady in White
    • Salt
Select one film from the above list and discuss ONE TYPE of IRONY found within the movie. Each body paragraph would pertain to three examples of the one type of irony found within the film.

NOTE: Please note that above films are either rated PG or PG-13! 

1. Please complete a five body paragraph triangle for the film you select to watch. This is due on Tuesday, October 25th!
