All Boys, All Blogged: January 18, 2012

Focus: Whom do we trust?  To what extent can we trust ourselves?

1. Warm-up: Thinking about the English classes you wish to take next year...

2. Taking Grammar Quiz #2: Nouns and Pronouns

3. Finally...back to Macbeth!  Going over the yellow sheet from yesterday and continuing to watch the film version of Act 1:

  • What makes Lady Macbeth so untrustworthy/deceptive?
  • Specifically, what techniques does she use to manipulate Macbeth? 
  • How would you describe Macbeth in these scenes?

1. Finish reading Act 1 of Macbeth on your own.
2. Compose a Level 1, a Level 2, and a Level 3 question about Act 1 (see link above Google calendar if you can't remember what this means).  Write them at the bottom of your yellow Act 1 "Quiz."
3. Complete word trace entries for the ending of this act.
4. Purchase your banned book and bring it to class next Friday.
