    Class Name: Grade 8/9 Literature 2

    This week’s focus: Context and Character

    Hello Literature 2 students, You have an extra week to complete last week’s assignment!! I don’t know about you, but our family seemed to have a slow start back to school last week. Maybe it was the same for you.
    Therefore, I would like to begin our discussion this coming Thursday of Animal Farm looking only at the first three chapters – really hoping you will not read further ahead. If you completed this posted assignment this past week, well done! Reread Chapters 1-3 and double check your work to make sure that you have completed it thoroughly and as outlined. I have included a few more details to help you.

    In Preparation for Class this Thursday, January 14, 2021:

    1. Read Chapters 1-3 of Animal Farm – by George Orwell

    2. As you read, use this attachment to record all the characters introduced and some notes about his/her personality, filling in the first 2 columns only. This assignment isn’t a group collaboration, therefore if you can take the document and make a copy of it, then you can fill it in on the computer. If you would prefer to recreate it using blank paper and handwriting also, that would be acceptable. (The more detail and description you add to this document, the easier it will be to complete the reading response submission for January.)

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1eaw-fZs1Fyn4m4B_K3mb0-d1PwlYieHB5nMYfIU_VXY/edit?usp=sharing

    3. Complete some research on the internet to answer the following questions about George Orwell in a notebook.
    *How old was the author when he wrote the book?
    *Was the author happy or unhappy? Friendly or reclusive?
    *What kinds of relationships did the author have? Did he have a family?
    *Did the author suffer any hardships in his life that might have made him think or feel a certain way about what he was writing about?
    *Where did the author live? (city or countryside, or what city, in poverty or comfort)
    *When did the author live? What events took place during his lifetime?

    4. Work on Chapter 8 in Art of Poetry. Tone: Putting it all together. We will be taking the Beasts of England poem/anthem from Animal Farm and discussing the tone in it. If you already analyzed one poem this past week, challenge yourself with another.

    Enrichment for those who are wanting more:
    1. Complete the challenge to memorize Robert Frost, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening. When we see this poem in both the January Schole update today and in our chapter on Tone, we recognize that it would be a good one to commit to memory. This would count for added participation marks!
    2. Complete some research and reading on Russia during 1900- 1950. How does it sound similar to Animal Farm?
    3. Enjoy reading a book for pleasure this week. Maybe finish the one you had started over the Christmas break.

    JANUARY ASSIGNMENT FOR SUBMISSION

    Looking ahead to the January assignment for submission, you will be using the character chart (once it is fully completed) to write a two paragraph reading response to one of the three questions below.

    1. Think about the names the author chooses to give the animals. How are their names symbols of their personalities and actions? Consider either Squealer, Mollie, Moses, or Napoleon. Choose one character to write about and give evidence from the text to support the connection between his/her name and his/her personality.

    2. Compare and contrast Snowball and Napoleon and the way they rule. Write about how they are the same and how they are different. Give evidence from the text using a plot event or specific quote.

    3. Discuss the ways in which Jones and Napoleon are similar. Give evidence from the text to support your answer.

    If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me, heather@atrbenefits.com.
