Homework Due
  • Frankenstein passage idea

Gothic Discussion and Notes
  • What is it?
  • What does it look like?
  • How is gothic literature similar to architecture and art?

"Home Burial"
  • I read the poem aloud, and then we started discussing questions people asked and discoveries they made.  And then we got into a complex discussion, somewhat along gender lines, about, basically, the way these two people are (or are not) communicating.  This was a great discussion, and we will continue it next week.

Two-Day Plan
  • I went over the plan for the next couple of days.  Please refer to your lime-green sheet.

  • The Frankenstein Reading quiz is tomorrow, so do what you need to do.
Homework Due
  • Writing Experiment #3

  • We talked about the Unit One overview on page 3, and we answered a lot of the questions there.
  • We talked about the two-day plan.  Please refer to your lime green sheet.

Writing Lesson
  • We created more precise ways of describing the items on Choosing Precise Adjectives.

Writing Experiment #4
  • We wrote a paragraph or an early memory.
  • Then we turned it into a poem, and turned both pieces in.
