Scribe for April 23, 2008

Today, we had a late start day due to the ACT testing. Classes were only twenty-three minutes each and school started at 11:30 am.

English class began with a greeting, "Hello Ms. Smith". We then jumped right into the homework. The Homework is:
Hw: grammar 15/16
Editing worksheet due Friday
Chapter review due Monday
Essay due tomorrow, no excuses

For the essay, we were given three options. They are as follows:
Option One: formal essay. Orwell wrote 1984 to warn us about the future. What was he warning us about? How has it come true in our society today? (two examples for each)

Option two: Write a new chapter in 1984. Stay true to the tone and form of the original book. Make this creative and emulate like Orwell, Pay attention to detail, keep accurate to the existing characters

Option three: In your life, who can you state ‘controls’ you? Do they control with fear? Opportunity? We would all like to say that we control ourselves, our actions, but is this true? (Use specific examples from your personal life) connect this to 1984. This is in personal essay format.

Remember, you only have to do one of the options, not all three.

Have fun writing!
