Okay. So. We started with reading for SYMBOL in OMM. Then in ANTIGONE, we worked on reading for PATTERN.
Now we’re going to try and combine the two as we look at three texts:
- A Separate Peace
- Looking for Alaska
- A film (either Dead Poet’s Society OR Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix)
Because of the PSAT, our schedule is a little bit wonky. Each class will do the next two days, but in different orders
Day 1: Mrs. B will introduce the Hero’s Journey (a new pattern), and we’ll talk a bit about how it transfers to the Boarding School Story, which is the specific version of the Hero’s Journey that we’re going to be exploring.
Day 2: Mrs. B will introduce the Socratic Seminar and you’ll have most of a class period to read A Separate Peace Chapter 1 and to do your first lab book entry.
