Wednesday January 4, 2012

Today was the first day of English for 2012!

A couple things to know about the semester, first everyone has to scribe twice so don't forget when your date is. Also make sure you know when you bring in doughnuts on Wednesday because if your forget you will be forever harassed.

For the semester we will be exploring the question "To what extent does a creator have responsibility for its creation? When does the creation assume responsibility for its own actions?" so keep that in mind for every unit we explore.

The units we are doing: 

  • Hell Unit: 
    • Dante's Divine Comedy
    • Bible
    • Milton
  • Shelley's Frankenstein
  • Wilde: Picture of Dorian Gray
  • Devil Wears Prada 
  • Huxley'sBrave New World

Finally as a final we will be giving a "last lecture". You are responsible for composing three different parts of the essay: growing up, lasting legacy, looking ahead. Each due as the semester progresses.

You guys are all awesome, looking forward to a great semester!
