10H – 23 May 2014 – SH5 Ch 5 & So It Goes

EEEP! I forgot to pass out affirmations packets in 1st hour. If you’re in first hour, feel free to swing by my room and pick one up so you can start them over the weekend if you like!

Today we’ll start/finish talking about “so it goes” before launching you into your reading day for Chapter 5. The journal prompts are on a Google Doc, but I’ll summarize them here:

  1. Continue your motif work from the previous chapters. There is a great list of potential motifs on the Google Doc, so I highly suggest taking a peek.
  2.  In addition, please complete the Sound Devices in Slaughterhouse Five exercises on the doc (you’ll be looking for examples of alliteration, assonance, consonance, onomatopoeia, and synasthesia (the last is not technically a sonic device, but hey).  Pay special attention to writing down WHY you think the particular device is used in the novel; what purpose it serves. I’ve provided examples on the GDoc.
