We're English 10 Nerds and Loving It: April 9, 2014

Focus: To what extent is our "reality" real?

Shortened Class: PLC

1. Warming up: Say hello to Mr. Rosenberg and recap the expectations for your Truman Show notes:

Your document should be called "___________ (your last name) Truman Show Notes" and needs to be shared with me directly at kleclaire@lps.k12.co.us

This document will eventually be worth 40 points in the growth category.

Include the following categories in your notes:

a. Characters: Names, personality traits, clothes, things they say

b. Motifs/symbols: Specific objects that seem symbolic, what they might represent, and how they change throughout the film

c. Questions: Level 1, 2, and 3 questions; try to answer them at the end of the film

d. Connections to Fahrenheit 451: Be specific and original (these will form the backbone of your essay)

2. Watching The Truman Show and taking notes

Note: Please keep track of where you stopped watching the movie today.

1. Add to your Truman Show notes.

2. Work on your book talk.

3. If you're interested in what's happening with Sam, feel free to check out our family blog.
