On this shortened day due to late start, we finished Bio Bag presentations and then began a review of elements of plot. Students tried to recall definitions to several different literary vocabulary terms, and then we discussed these, and my, definitions. We also began finding examples of each term in “The Most Dangerous Game.”
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.
