Purple Hibiscus Secondary Essay Question

Honors classes- so I went in and added another option for the essay based on a quote that I remember from high school.  I think some of you might find it to be more of an engaging prompt.  We will discuss it a little bit next class.  The deadline is still April 23.

Let me know if you have any other questions

Walk Outs

Good Morning Seniors

   Just wanted to let students who plan on walking out on Thursday or Friday know that I applaud your actions and you are still responsible for the material that you are missing from class.  Honors students still must complete assigned readings and the discussion questions (if you are out of class these must be completed on your own).  If you have not come to get a book yet the audiobook can be found here

  AP students should email me for a copy of our SH-5 introduction flipchart as well as all pertinent reading materials.  If you have not come to get a copy of the book you can find the .pdf here 

Email me with any questions, AND KEEP READING!!!!

A little Hamlet love

I saw this the other day and remembered how much I enjoyed the doc.  Gives a lot of context of what the play means to actors, directors and those who make a living in the theater.  It's a hard text but there is something to be said for struggling through it just as millions of other students from all over the world have before.  If you have some time, give this short film a watch--

Chief White Halfoat

When reviewing the quote regarding race on page 44 check out this sketch from SNL from a few years back and consider the connection and what Heller might be getting at here.  Keep in mind that the newspaper headlines that are being held up WERE ACTUALLY PRINTED IN NEW YORK CITY!

Adaptation Projects

Polonius Says- Hamlet I, iii 640x480 from Jeremy Stelzner on Vimeo

Above you will find a particularly strong adaptation from a few years back.  This particular group wanted to adapt I, iii where Polonius is giving advice to his children.  They decide to shift Polonius to a mob boss 'type' but kept Ophelia as a boy dressed as a girl just as she would have been on the Elizabethan stage.  The project was completed by a group of four with one member serving as the director.  All students helped with editing.  I will continue to post some examples over the next week or so to get the inspiration flowing.  Remember you can work with anyone in any of my honors classes on this project!

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Missed Classes

Once again, if you miss class for one reason or another please be sure to email or swing by to see me when you get back to Blair to get the material that you missed while you were gone.  As always the key to being successful is to communicate.

Let me know if you have any questions- keep working on those long term creative assignments and let me know if you need anything

Enjoy the long weekend
