    Class Name: Grade 8/9 Literature 2

    This week’s focus: Animal Farm – Characters
    In Preparation for Class this Thursday, January 21, 2021 at 1:00 (note the time change):

    1. Read Chapters 4-6 of Animal Farm – by George Orwell
    2. As you read, use the attachment where we recorded all the characters introduced and some notes about his/her personality. Begin working on adding details to column 3 and 4 as plot events unfold. Make a copy of this updated document so you can add to it as you did the last time. Is there evidence through quotes that you can include to support personality characteristics? Give a page number as a reference.

    3. In your commonplace book, record a sentence or quote from Animal Farm that you find interesting and be prepared to share it with the class on Thursday.

    4. Read through Chapter 9 in Art of Poetry. History of Form, Movements and Genres.

    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?


    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. We will review the marking criteria this week in class.

    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, Snowball 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 and/or a 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 please do not hesitate to contact me, heather@atrbenefits.com
