Taming of the Shrew Stop Motion Induction Scene Project


This Project is based on the Shakespeare unit in English 9. It is about how “Sly” a character in the play, gets drunk and passes out, and the lord plays a prank on Sly. When sly wakes up him is in a room surrounded by paintings, a then his three servants come in (who are also in on the prank), to help convince that he was sick and that he is a very wealthy person. Then the Pretend page comes in to tell him that he was very sick. Then Sly wants to have sex with her, but she comes up with an excuse to get out of it. Then the servants come back in to present a play. In the play, there are two people who are looking for a wife. They find 2 girls and sit down to talk to their father and are surprised to find out about one of there really bad tempers and are shocked about how rude she is. They negotiate with their father and agree that they will find a wife for the rude one.

Propaganda Poster Project


To create a rebellion against man, the four propaganda techniques used in the Animal Farm poster were: fear, repetition, bandwagon and name calling.

The first propaganda technique used was fear. A mean looking picture of Mr. Jones holding a whip and a bottle of beer inside a red no symbol was drawn to create fear. The reader may assume this man is a drunk or even an alcoholic. The whip held by Mr. Jones may suggest cruelty toward animals. A picture of a frightened pig helps sends a message that animals are helpless.

The second propaganda technique used in this poster was repetition. The words, “Four legs good, two legs bad” were repeated behind the picture of Mr. Jones to emphasize the message of how man with two legs is bad and animals with four legs are good. This message was repeated for visual effect and to convince the reader that man was the enemy.

The third propaganda technique used in this poster was bandwagon. “We need you to help overthrow mankind and other psychotic people like Jones! JOIN THE REBELION TODAY, THE ANIMAL FARM.” This bandwagon statement summarized the cause of the animal movement against man and helps convince readers they need to join the rebellion against Mr. Jones and man.

The fourth propaganda technique used in this poster was name calling; to help create a movement of hatred toward “other psychotic people like Jones.”

The Secluded Lot

Exposition: “I would like to inquire about a lot” the old man said. Pg. 115

Rising action: I’d like a good view, but more important, privacy. Pg. 116

Rising action: “then it’s settled” Mr. Jerome hastened to close the deal. “The contract can be worded to accord with your wishes”. “My last wished” the old man said. Pg.118

Rising action: on the other side of the thicket he was surprised to find Mr. Blake snooping over a high, square, white box intent on fixing something. A bee circled slowly overhead, and then dove for its target. Ouch! Yelled Mr. Jerome. That cursed bee stung me! Pg. 119

Climax: “How dare you operate a beehive in this cemetery?” ”it’s on my property. I purchased it did I not?”  Pg. 119

Falling action: you sell the honey? Jerome was shocked. Maybe it was just beginner’s luck, old man Blake replied modestly. Pg. 20

Falling action: Oh, no! Jerome’s well-modulated voice rose to a shout: look here, I won’t have it. You must stop this at once! Pg. 120

Resolution: Mr. Jerome, I have reached an important decision: I should like to buy another lot. Pg. 121
