September 30

We started class with 30 minutes of blog time (it really turned out to be more like 45 minutes). I shared some stellar student blog entries as model texts. And I reminded students of the blogging procedure and suggested that they proofread their posts before publishing them. The final blog entry for this 9 weeks is due before 11pm Tuesday, October 11.

Students turned in their Prologue and Parados analysis charts. We recapped Scene 1 of Antigone (come in A block Tuesday for this review) and analyzed Creon's tone (handout). We also read and interpreted Ode 1.
