Grammar - Commas - We will have a much harder comma challenge today
We will discuss the meaning of the poem "Invictus" and then my ELA 20-1 students will research the poetic devices employed (these can be found at http://www.poetryfoundation.org/learning/glossary-terms?category=techniques-and-figures-of-speech) and write a short critical response linking these devices to the theme of the poem.
My ELA 20-2 will discuss the use of metaphor and create an extended metaphor for a situation (bus ride, basketball game, hockey arena, visit to a bathroom...anything). They will take the situation and a separate object or situation and draw a comparison.
We will then watch two videos from shawshank
