Wednesday, October 8th, 2014 (ED Schedule)


Day 36--Wednesday, October 8th
  • 1:10 dismissal schedule; class end at 9:15

Soviet Union Background
  1. Check Soviet Union quiz in a DIFFERENT color of ink than you used originally.  
  2. Check if you get it correct, “X” and write in the correct answer, if needed.
  3. Write “-” and the number you missed, then put X/8 for your total score.
  4. Class Discussion:  are you seeing any parallels, resonances, echoes between the Soviet Union events and people, and the events in Animal Farm?  Since this novella is an allegory, we need to start listening for that second level, the level underneath the literal level.
  5. Throw the quiz in the drawer.

  • Pass back a few papers, and organize your binder now.
