Monday– 3rd period: SLO test/Bloom Ball construction/ some Oedipus if time
6th/7th: Bloom Ball construction/Oedipus
*I am grading the dystopian journals. I am seeing that many of you do not adequately explain what you mean. For instance, you might say it is a current connection and you translate the quote but you don’t really say how it connects to current society. Likewise on dystopian characteristics, many of you have put things that you think are bad or futuristic but that’s not enough. You have to show how it reflects actual dystopian characteristics. I’m including a handy sheet here though you should have had these in your notes. You will be able to amend your journals if you wish.*
Please use these additional notes to help in fixing your entries: DefinitionCharacteristics
