Focus: To what extent is our reality "real"?
1st hour: You finally have a new seating chart!
All hours: Please turn in your final observation charts if you did not do so yesterday.
1. Warming up with an important announcement and a new round of book talks!
2. Explaining how to set up your notes for The Truman Show
Please start a new document called "___________ (your last name) Truman Show Notes" and share it with me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
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)
3. Watching The Truman Show
Add to your Truman Show notes (once again, please make sure they're shared with me directly).
Work on your book talk if you have not delivered it yet.
