Today in class, we went over the literary response questions to "The Open Window."
Then, I gave a brief intro to our first unit, "Matters of Life and Death." We then worked on an in-class creative writing assignment centered around the theme of life and death situations (link below). This assignment is in-class work, not homework. We will have more time to work during our first class meeting next week.
At the end of the period, I handed out a homework assignment consisting of a story, "The Most Dangerous Game," and some questions to be completed and turned in at our next class.
