It's just like Facebook except it's boring, full of homework assignments and no fun to visit. Enjoy.

Short Stories Continued

At the end of last class I gave you two short stories to read:

FAT by Raymond Carver

and

THE CASK OF AMONTILLADO by Edgar Allan Poe

Today we did the following things…

  1. I did a quick check to make sure all (some???  a few??? one???) of you have read the stories.
  2. We ran this story though the same series of questions as the other ones we’ve looked at so far: What is it’s purpose? Who’s story is it? What is the tone? What kind of language does it use? Is it a successful story?
  3. With my computer fixed, we were finally able to watch the Andrew Stanton video that I wanted to show you the first day.

NEXT THREE CLASSES:

  • Wednesday – One more story and film
  • Monday- Quiz on all the stories
  • Wednesday – Library for short story assignment

After that we’re done short stories an onto 1984…the novel..not the year.
