Thursday, Oct. 13th

We finished off the introduction to the Renaissance, and started working on SONNETS.  In groups of three, you were assigned a sonnet to study and present to the class.  Figure out WHAT it is about…the theme, the problem, the solution, the context… and observe the writing STYLE.  How are these ideas conveyed?  What type of sonnet is it?  How does the form complement the content?  What “artifice” or “ornamentation” is there in terms of LITERARY DEVICES?  What connotations are used?

We have a treat next class as Mr. Wallace has invited us to the drama studio to watch Girls Like That, starring our own Fiona Ho!   We will meet in the classroom before heading to the play.

You will present your sonnets on Wednesday, Oct. 19th.
