Monday- Spoken Word + “Homecoming King”

I will give you the first half of class to work on Spoken word. We will begin with some physical activities to get your brain going and your comfort level up (hopefully).

Remember- you perform on Thursday or Friday.

Then we will watch half of”Homecoming King”. How do stereotypes affect one’s identity? What are the conflicts that may arise when one is a new immigrant? How does Hasam feel about his identity as a Indo-American? 

Friday- Spoken Word

Look what I found- an Ode! Why is it an ode? Ode to a Mango

Spoken Word: Spoken Word Presentation

You need a topic by Monday!!!!!!

Reminder… you will have a test on Monday. It will include ALL of the poetic devices on this: poetry_terminology_11-

AND it will include “O’Me, O’Life” and “Captain, My Captain” AND Dead Poet’s Society. Go online and get an even deeper understanding of the two poems and how they relate to the movie.
