HW due 2/2: Slaughterhouse Five and More

1. Slaughterhouse Five–Complete the novel! As you finish the novel, FOCUS your annotating on tracking Vonnegut’s treatment of a certain theme or tracking his use of particular devices. Remember, this will be one of two options (the other being 1984) for your next essay.

2. Satire/Parody projects are due by 3 p.m. Thursday! In addition to your film, you must submit a script (to satisfy the written requirement for the project).

The following will be considered when assessing the satire/parody project:

1. Project’s visual impact (The visual should be aesthetically pleasing…more simply, it should look amazing). Many of you are making films! Be thoughtful/creative in how you compose each shot and how you edit the film.
2. The project should demonstrate control of satire and/or parody.
3. Project is thoughtful. Beyond the visual element, the written element should also reflect great thought on subject and form.
4. Project is well-designed/executed.
5. Project reflects exceptional effort.  This one is very important as I (and my fellow assessors) expect to see a project that “took time and effort” to complete.
6. All projects are expected to employ irony as one of the primary figurative elements to carry the project’s purpose/message. Be thoughtfully/creatively ironic!
