Monday 18 Sept- English 9H

17 Sep

First, let’s talk about the grading policy for this class. You may have noticed the rubric attached when I returned Friday #1. The big takeaway is that percentages don’t matter. Consistency and growth do matter. Everyone can improve.

Discussion chapters 4-6

First, discuss at your tables: 1 thing you predicted would happen, and 1 thing you did not expect to happen. Finally, ask one question you have about the book so far, either about what we’ve already read, that you would like clarification on, or something coming that you’re curious about. Write your responses in your notebooks as an opener. One person should keep track of the what is discussed, as we will be sharing later.

Characters- There are so many in this section. Make a list of the characters in this section. How much do we find out about them? Are any as fully shaped as Pip? Why?

Conflicts- Many conflicts, both internal and external. Keep track of these.

Satire- Chapter 6 is Dickens’ satire of education during his lifetime. How is he pointing out the failings of the system? What do you think he hoped for instead?

Homework: read chapters 7-9 (p 30-43), while you are reading keep notes on the setting (Satis House) and the two new characters we meet, Estella and Miss Havisham.
