Projects and Procrastination
The summer assignment is just the beginning
Divergent - Many of you have probably already read Divergent, but this section of Honors English was actually really fun. Every student gets divided into factions just like in the book. Within your own faction, you and your partners design a shoe box filled with items that would typically be found in your faction. Mrs. Allen also had us watch clips from the movie and discuss the differences from the actual book.
Romeo and Juliet - You'll get to tackle Shakespeare this year. After finishing this long play, we had to make our own playlist that related to the main themes of Romeo and Juliet. Before we started reading Romeo and Juliet, we first learned about Shakespeare and the rest of his plays. We also learned what many Shakespearean words meant.
Poetry - Poetry is the last section of Honors English. Everyone had to create their own
spoken word poem that really showed how they fell. We also watched a movie called Louder Than a Bomb which showed real teens writing poetry. These teens put all of their emotions into writing their poetry. After we finished writing our own poems, we had to record them for the class to view.
