An Introduction to Greek Theatre

Today, we covered some important background information for Antigone, which we will begin on Monday.  First, we went through the background of the Oedious myth in the Notebook file posted below, and practiced making notes.  We continued to practice making notes with two videos on Greek Theatre.  If you missed today, print off the guiding questions, then have a look through the videos and take notes to answer the questions

Multi-genre projects will be due on Monday, January 11th, 2015.  You will present them by laying the items on a table in the Library, so that your classmates can circulate and view your unique creations.  This will probably take two days to complete.

On our first day back, we completed a timeline in small groups of the most important events of Part 1 (1984) and up to page 101 in Brave New World.   With the important events in mind, everyone moved on with their books from there.  In 1984, students are to read to 135 by the end of the week, filling in as much of the chart posted below as possible (the important events that show the evolution of Winston and Julia's relationship).  Those reading Brave New World will complete to page 121 by Thursday, and answer the questions posted below, regarding Linda and John, whose stories are revealed in those pages.
