Today we briefly talked about 9/11/2001, and about how it altered the culture of America in an instant. We didn't dwell on the topic, but did discuss the impact that it had on both Mr. Julius and myself.
After that, we moved on to discussing Theme and practicing with Theme statements. Students were asked to write both the theme concept and theme statement for two songs and two movies. After that, students were additionally asked to think about what they believe the theme is of Life of Pi, and to come up with at least 3 pieces of text evidence to support their claim.
Their two songs and two movies were to be emailed to me, and all of this is DUE TOMORROW.
