    Class Name: Grade 8/9 Literature 2

    This week’s focus: The Scarlet Pimpernel

    In preparation for class on February 25, 2021:

    1. Chapter 11 – Shaping Forms from Art of Poetry. I would like you to try writing either an Ode, an Elegy or Pastoral form of poetry. On page 152, consider #2, #3, or #4 as prompts.

    2. The Scarlet PimpernelRead Chapters 1-8 this week. Instead of looking at specific characters this time, we are going to investigate and develop themes. See the attached sheet which you can use throughout reading the book to notate references to specific themes as we read this novel. Follow the two examples outlined. As well you will see there are 6 questions that will be used for class discussion. Jot some thoughts or answers down as you read, so you are prepared for class discussion.

    3. Brush up on some information about the French Revolution:
    -When did the French Revolution begin?
    -Who was the King of France?
    -What was the immediate cause of the Revolution?
    -Prior to the Revolution the population of France was divided into three estates. Who were the members of each estate?
    -Who paid the most of the taxes in France?
    -What happened at the Bastille and why was this important?
    -What did lower and middle class people want at the beginning of the revolution?
    -What was the Reign of Terror?
    -Who was Robespierre?
    -What classes of people died in the Terror?

    Enrichment for those who are wanting more:

    1. Memorize the poem on page 144 in Art of Poetry. Perhaps the World Ends Here
    2. Part of the fun of reading The Scarlet Pimpernel is trying to uncover the identity. After reading just the first six chapters, send me an email who you think “he” is. List three reasons to support your selection.

    Class Name Writing & Rhetoric 7/8
    This week’s focus: Writing & Rhetoric 7 lesson 10: Second Vituperation
    Remember that a vituperation is a condemnation of a specific person or thing, and it too, uses evidence to support its negative point of view. See below the bolded part? That is the difference in a vituperation.
    In preparation for Schole support class: Please have Lesson 10 from page 167 to 171
    So let’s walk through what makes a great Vituperation essay:
    Start with an introduction that includes hyperbole a thesis and a transition sentence.
    Detail your subject’s background. Consider his or her ancestors including parents, country, or education.
    Support your thesis by telling your reader about your subject’s POOR qualities. Consider his or her personal FLAWS, HARMFUL ATTITUDES or VICES
    Support your thesis by telling about the persons career. Describe this PERSON’S LACK OF WORTHWHILE ACHIEVEMENTS or show how this person used his or her gifts for IMPROPER USES. Use a quote from the text to support your point of view.
    Contrast the person with a BETTER person in order to heighten your criticism.
    Write a conclusion. Use new wording to restate your thesis. Consider discouraging your audience from imitating your subject.
    To be completed during the week: Page 175 to 182. Come prepared with some ideas, but we will work together on writing time.
    We will read the SPEAK IT on page 185 together. Come prepared with your best voice 😊
    THIS MONTH’S ASSIGNMENT FOR SUBMISSION:
    January: you will use the same Rubric on page 116 and hand in an essay on Susan B. Anthony or Ulysses Grant for end of January. Please remember to hand these in if you haven’t done so already!
