Students spent the first part of class practicing their Bio Bag presentations with two different partners. Then we had our first round of volunteers present their Bio Bags to the entire class; we will continue with Bio Bag presentations next week. At the end of class, we read further in ”The Most Dangerous Game” and wrote (and answered) additional questions about the text. Homework: make sure you bring your Bio Bag items to class on Monday if you did not present today.
This class is an opportunity for students to develop and practice their skills in reading and analysis of literature as well as writing. Our various texts will be the vehicles through which they will hone their critical thinking abilities, and our writing exercises will be an outlet of expression for these abilities. We will be reading poetry, short fiction, novels, and dramatic texts. Our objectives are to master the elements of literature, practice the writing process, and improve organization of writing.
