    Class Name: Grade 8/9 Literature 2

    This week’s focus: Animal Farm

    In preparation for class this week at 1:00 on Thursday Feb. 4:

    1. Read Chapters 9-10 of Animal Farm – by George Orwell
    2. In your commonplace book, record another sentence or quote from Animal Farm that you find interesting and be prepared to share it with the class..
    3. Take time to reread the very last paragraph in Chapter 10 and be prepared to have a discussion about it. “The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”
    4. Read through Chapter 10 – Art of Poetry — Last week you read about Verse poems in the following sections Villanelle, Sestina, and Sonnet. This week I would like you to finish reading about Ballad and Blank Verse Poems. In the activity section, on page 134, you are challenged to write in EVERY form, however, I would like you to attempt writing in ONLY ONE OR TWO forms. If you are comfortable to share your attempt or completed poetry with the class, that would be wonderful. Please let me know ahead of time.

    Enrichment (for those who are wanting more)
    Extra Questions to think about as we finish our book study on Animal Farm:
    *In Napoleon’s note to himself in Chapter 7, outline the details of his propaganda campaign.
    * Imagine you were to write Boxer’s eulogy, how would it be different from Clover’s, Benjamin and Napoleon’s perspective.
    *The truest happiness, Napoleon said, lay in working hard and living frugally.” Does Napoleon really believe this?

    January Submission – Due Feb. 5, 2021
    Continue to work on your reading reflection on one of the options listed in the attached document.

    Literature 1–THE HOBBIT NO ZOOM THIS WEEK

    This week’s focus: no zoom this week, it’s a read/write week

    To be completed this week: NEXT CLASS IS WEEK AFTER THIS ONE

    Enjoy reading the book. Please finish the book and work before the break in February.

    PLEASE BRING A QUOTE TO CLASS THAT YOU ENJOY FROM THE BOOK.
    This is a participation activity. IF you don’t know what to look for, use the literary devices from Grammar of Poetry to guide: look for pun, personification, simile, metaphor, synecdoche.

    Keep highlighting and marking your work for evidence of Bilbo’s character.
    EVIDENCE—is what someone says or does. It can be what Bilbo says or does or what another character says or does to/in response to Bilbo.

    I am going to post some google docs (Copy link into a web browser)

    1. The HOBBIT- a character study that you are working on. I will update mine. You could see what I am doing and how some chapters may have few or many ideas.

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ti41PgymWJKJx2af1DCmv7gZv8HBz2Uk0_9aoCKeRkk/edit?usp=sharing

    2. READING GEMS—I don’t know what else to call this but I will “commonplace” on google documents so you can see what I am enjoying along the way. This is merely for your perusal, there is NO REQUIRED work from this. I might add some musings too.
    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1hpwKKkF2_Q_FG6SpjV0JBCNgbuc07mX33_031UtzJvI/edit?usp=sharing
