Make of list of 3-5 ways/specific things that I can use to help you explore the idea of identity when reading a book, and bring it to class.
If you didn’t finish reading Act One (which ends on page 46) finish reading it.
Then right down a characterization of John Proctor: What kind a person do you think he is?
Read in you books to page 46 (the end of act 1) for Friday and answer the following questions:
- Why do you think Parris and Hale believe the girls?
- Do you think the girls planned this whole thing out?
- Why do you think they are accusing those people
Be prepared to talk about them first thing in class.
Using the packets that you have of act 1 scene 5, pick five songs, one song for each blocked off section. For each song, you need to write down the title and why the song fits that part of the scene is it the mood? the tone? a word that connects it? etc.
The songs are for the following sections:
Song 1: Romeo first sees Juliet
Song 2: Tybalt and Capulet fight over wanting to kill Romeo at the party
Song 3: Romeo and Juliet meet and kiss
Song 4: Romeo finds out that Juliet is a Capulet
Song 5: Juliet learns that Romeo is a Montague
Lindsay Lohan moves through the Chateau Marmont as if she owns the place, but in a debtor-prison kind of way. She’ll soon owe the hotel $46,000. Heads turn subtly as she slinks toward a table to meet a young producer and an old director. The actress’s mother, Dina Lohan, sits at the next table. Mom sweeps blond hair behind her ear and tries to eavesdrop. A few tables away, a distinguished-looking middle-aged man patiently waits for the actress. He has a stack of presents for her.
Driving home during the holidays, I found myself trapped in the permanent traffic jam on I-95 near Bridgeport, Conn. In the back seat, my son was screaming. All around, drivers had the menaced, lifeless expressions that people get when they see cars lined up to the horizon. It was enough to make me wish for congestion pricing — a tax paid by drivers to enter crowded areas at peak times. After all, it costs drivers about $16 to enter central London during working hours. A few years ago, it nearly caught on in New York. And on that drive home, I would have happily paid whatever it cost to persuade some other drivers that it wasn’t worth it for them to be on the road.
Pick one of the stories from this page of WNYC radio rookies and listen to it with your partner. As you listen (or after) discuss with your partner what you can write down on your Audio Story Examiner.
