Tuesday - Gothic Unit Test Part B: Objective Assessment
For the following texts, you should be able to identify characters and their characteristics/roles in the story, the setting, themes, and Gothic characteristics:
Edgar Allan Poe: "The Masque of the Red Death"
Edgar Allan Poe: "Annabelle Lee"
Robert Browning: "My Last Duchess"
Roald Dahl: "The Landlady"
Mary Shelley: Frankenstein excerpts
"Jane Eyre" film study
A great way to study for the exam is to go through the Gothic powerpoint and try to match the elements of a Gothic story with the literature we read.
Wednesday - Peer and teacher review of your powerpoint drafts. Bring your flash drive with the powerpoint!
Thursday - Writer's Notebook: "Write about the funniest thing that ever happened to you."
Powerpoints are due. Volunteers will be first to present, after which I will draw names.
Friday - Writer's Notebook: "Friday Freewrite"
