Essay on the Sniper short story was reviewed and points for improvement were discussed. Students were given pointers for re-assessment. The dystopian story was introduced and book club books (to be divided into three chunks) were chosen. Book club chunk 1 is due next week in Google Classroom.
In this unit, Gr. 8 will read the book club book and write an expository essay about it. They will also write their own dystopian stories and create a propaganda poster about it. Below is the timeline for this quarter:
Next week, students will read “The Lottery“.
Next week is about the history of the Philippines to give a background of the Philippine EDSA revolution.
