We spent the first half of class finishing our reading of “The Most Dangerous Game.” We discussed the end of the story, including any more questions students had, and we speculated on what would happen to the characters after the story concluded. Then we worked through several more Bio Bag presentations until the end of class.
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.
