Reading Log

Expecting 10+ entries in "Book Talk" and 20+ entries in the Reading Log

We will be responding to "Plinky Prompts"  - the plan. The big deal here is that you will need our group members to contribute to the thread, it is the whole that should be greater than the sum of its parts.

ELA 20
November 22-29 we'll focus on the remaining Short Story Studies. We have read "The Hobby" but we can also watch "Field of Dreams".

We've read The Sea Devil and the comparison to The Hobby essay is due November 22nd.

We are always turning our discussions into an exploration of themes exploring anxiety(The Human Condition–In Search of Self) - we could try and connect the stages of psychosocial development by Erik Erikson. Later (The Tower), we should discuss the influence of gender on anxiety.

The real ambitious could also read and connect to The Catcher in the Rye.

The Stories:

Film Study 9
Read along with the script of the film we view next: The Iron Giant
Look for "tropes" to play a major role in

the next 2 writing activities - a review and/or a short story(ask me about the "or").

I've come up with a silly organizer called The Iron Giant TV Trope Bingo.

Add a list of movie reviews on your blog - activate the wp-movie-ratings plugin: page and widget. Include all movies viewed so far, add a few others you've seen.
