Only one week left of class…WHAT?!
We are doing three Caught-yas this week in order to finish the story. Complete Caught-yas 128, 129, & 130. After rewriting the sentences, watch the videos below and make any corrections that you missed. We won’t be doing a Caught-ya in class next week, so these are your last three!
In case you missed it, here is 127 which we did in class.
Read The Importance of Being Earnest
For the last book of the semester, read The Importance of Being Earnest, by Oscar Wilde, a comedic play criticizing Victorian society. Wilde creates a comedic tone by using literary devices, such as satire, puns, hyperbole, and verbal, situational, and dramatic irony. Look for examples of each as you read! Next week we will be watching the movie in class (the 2002 version starring Colin Firth).
Write a short story (optional)
Write a 3-7 page short story using as many literary elements as you can! This is an optional assignment, but we would love to read them!
And if you haven’t already, finish your final essay. It’s not too late to turn it in next week!
