10H – 13 May 2014 – Reflection and a Peek ahead at Journal Interviews

Scroll Down for Journal Interview Info

HOMEWORK FOR TOMORROW: please read “Is He Serious? And Other Ironies” (Foster, Chapter 26). For your Journal prompt, please write about a film or book you know well that contains the kinds of ironies Foster describes.

Today we will

  • Do a short reflection about your Midsummer scene study
  • Watch the other class’s videos
  • Get copies of Slaughterhouse Five and a calendar for the rest of the 10H year. Please note that you are welcome to start reading SH5 at any time, but the readings are due on the discussion days listed on the calendar. I have posted journal entries for Ch 1, Ch 2-4 and Ch 5 on the journal entries list if you want to work ahead.
  • Sign up for Journal Interviews (see below for more information)

Journal Interviews Information

You’ll sign up for your journal interviews. The skills, required texts and other information is all in the original Journal Interview packet, a modified copy of which is available here: Journal Interview Packet (Sp 2014). Samples are available under the Quick Docs tab (above). You’ll probably also want a copy of the updated The Journal Interview Rubric (Spring 2014).


The key pieces of the Journal Interview packet that you probably need for the second round are the CRITICAL READING SKILLS we’ve discussed. Note that you are required to go beyond Foster this time around, and should use Nabokov, Perrine, Agassiz, Gaiman, and/or Frost.
