Wednesday, December 16th

Today, we...

Worked on a group project with many different options. If you were absent today, you need to choose one of the following three options that can be done independently from a group and turn it in when you get back:

Option #2: Creative Writing

Each member of your group, working alone, should choose one character from Song of Solomon and use him/her as the main character in a new short story.

End Product: Turn in your story.

Option #4: Architecture

On three different pieces of blank paper, design houses/apartment buildings for the Dead family, Pilate and Guitar based on what you know about them and their circumstances. Include a quote from the book on each page. Then, for each house, write a ½ page about how what you have drawn reflects the characters living within.

End Product:: Turn in all the work in a packet.

Option #5: College Essay

Each member of the group, working alone, should choose a college for Milkman to apply to. Then respond, in Milkman’s voice, to the application question: What influences have shaped you?

End Product: Turn in your essay.

HW: read through p. 186 and work on your portfolio (you might want to finish it over the break so you don't have to do it at the end of the term)
