We began today's class with a quickwrite. Here is the prompt:
Think of a time when you had significant pressure on you to prove yourself. What was the situation? What happened, and how did things turn out?
We discussed student responses to this prompt. Then, students got into their project groups and presented their movie pitch assignment to the class.
Next, we watched a short film version of the story, "The Interlopers."
Then, we went over the literary response questions to the story.
Lastly, I handed out your homework. It is attached below.
Have a great weekend :)
