Due 11/21: 1984 and Much More…

Note: There are many due dates listed below. Review them closely.

1. 1984–(Short reading this weekend so that our discussion can catch up to where we are in the novel.) Read and annotate Chapter 6!

2. Art as Social Commentary–TYPED proposals due! Answer the following questions:

  • What is your chosen issue?
  • Why did you choose that issue?
  • At this point, what is your vision for the visual piece?

Also, you should have at least one (of your three) sources chosen this weekend. Valid sources include newspapers, journals, magazines, etc. The first precis is due 11/22. The next two precis are due 12/1. The final creative piece is due 12/12. Keep in mind when choosing sources: Do not choose three sources that communicate the same information. The three sources should work together to provide you with added depth of understanding of your issue.

3. (Due 11/22) Surprise: Gratitude Letters!!! Yes, in the spirit of being thankful, please write (handwritten preferably) a letter to someone for whom you are grateful. Thank them and let them know why you are thankful. Be heartfelt. Write your name at the bottom of the letter. Ideally, this letter would be to an adult in the building (excluding me). Put the letter in an envelope and write the recipient’s name on the outside of the envelope.

4. Personal Vocab–We start back at 1. By the end of this upcoming week, you should have 5 new words. Again, the primary source for your vocab words should be material read in THIS class.
