Today was a truly tragic day at Arapahoe.
We found out at the end of 3rd hour that we lost freshman Martin Walworth, a dear friend, good student and excellent musician. This is particularly difficult due to the recent passing of Jason Wren as well. We hope they rest in peace and are here for those who are struggling through this hard time. Seniors especially (but really all upperclassmen) this is our time to protect our school, to ensure the well-being of ALL Warriors, regardless of if we know them or not, now is the time to make that connection and take care of one another.
Read the Forward of Brave New World and come to class with questions:
What's the point?
What is goin gon at this time in the world?
Any other good questions you have.
here is an online text:
Going back to watching the Simpsons last week....What was being satirized?
Stay at home moms
boringness at fishing
belief in media
money to politics
vegetarians/impact on society
men=boys will be boys
the American family
These are all examples of horatian satire
We viewed some examples of satire from the Onion, they can be found on the English Lit page. We also got into groups and looked at some of the articles together and analyzed what is being satirized and how this is done.
We looked at Harper's Index (also on the website) and played on the smartboard a little bit.
Satire groups and presentations due on Friday!
Read the Forward and bring questions.
work on your last lecture, deadline is coming up.
Again, RIP Jason and Martin, in our hearts and memories forever.
