Dear Juniors,
If you missed class, we completed the following:

1. Journal #5 "Afghan Woman Punished"
Tell me how this article made you feel and why you experienced those emotions. List five of your total questions that you consider the strongest. Basically, which of your questions, in your opinion, would cause another individual to think about, or even question, events indicated within the article.

2. We continued with a new story entitled "The Open Window;" it is full of symbolism and irony. To introduce this story, students were asked to view a Madonna music video entitled "Oh, Father," and list as many symbols and their possible meanings as their Journal #6... Madonna: "Oh Father." We viewed the video two times and then discussed the symbolism that the students noticed. 

3. This was a valid introduction to "The Open Window," as the short story is highly symbolic. We read the story in class.
