What did I miss? 10/28

English IV Regular and Honors: We began watching Monty Python and the Holy Grail. You will need to print and read this handout (*note: this link has been fixed now, so you will get the correct handout by clicking on it). In order to answer the questions, you will need to watch the first 32 minutes of the film. You can do this in one of three ways: (1) Stop in during 6th, 7th, or 8th period to watch the portion of the film you missed. (2) Get the movie from the library, Netflix, or other means of borrowing DVDs and watch it at home. (3) Watch some of the scenes (“Coconuts and Swallows”, “Bring Out Your Dead”, The Annoying Peasant, The Black Knight, “She’s a Witch!”, “The Blessing”, and “French Taunting”)on YouTube. If you go with the YouTube option, be sure to watch them in the order I’ve posted them. This will cover almost the entire portion we viewed today.

Pre-AP English — Quickwrite: What is the difference between pleasure and happiness? After the QW, we discussed how the two concepts fit in with both the novel and the time period during which it was written. Reading time was allowed for the last 15 minutes of class (The Sieve and the Sand is due on Friday). *** All makeup Antigone tests must be completed tomorrow in class.

English II Regular: Vocab Creative Writing due today; finally, you were given the majority of the period to read and work on your study guide for chapter 6. Don’t forget that your vocabulary quiz has been moved to FRIDAY.
