1. Has American dystopia become more of a reality than fiction? Formulate a 200-250 word response to this prompt using Solnit’s article. Do you agree with her claim? Why or why not? You may approach this question in a number of other ways: write about an aspect of the article you didn’t understand or have a question about. You can even delve into something that caught your attention or develop on one of your classmate’s comment by disagreeing or reevaluating it. The main purpose of this blog post is to exercise your critical thinking skills. So don’t be afraid to share your thoughts. There are no wrong answers here!
Comment under this post with your name and class signed at the end of your response. It will be counted as a part of your homework grade. Also, don’t panic if you don’t see your comment right away. I have to approve it.
2. Don’t forget to study for the vocabulary quiz! Here is the link for it. 10G1 will have it on List 1-10 and 10G2 on List 2-10. I will be dictating the words so make sure you know the spelling and pronunciation of each word! Along with the definitions, practice writing your own sentences. You’ll be quizzed on 10 out of the 15 words and will be asked to write either definitions or sentences. Since this will be 10G1’s first quiz, you’ll only be tested on the definitions.
3. I wasn’t able to check the Independent Reading sign up sheet today, however, I hope you’ve started reading your choice of novel. We’ll speak more about it on Monday.
Enjoy your weekend! 🙂
