Class Minutes: Monday April 11th

1. Prayer

2. Review of Act I:  We summarized what has happened so far in Macbeth. Different students contributed facts about each scene.

3. Language Tools in Act I: Ms. Meakes gave out some notes on language tools. We are supposed to fill out the back for homework.

4. Lady Macbeth's Persuasion: We filled out a chart looking for Lady Macbeth's persuasion techniques from Act I scene vi. We reviewed the answers as a class and they are posted on moodle.

5. "We Wear the Mask" by Paul Laurence Dunbar. We talked about the meaning of the poem, the reason for wearing a mask conveyed by the speaker (protection, to hide from the world) and compared it to Macbeth's use of deception/two-faced behaviour.  We discussed the idea of appearance (mask) vs. reality (real emotions).

6. Read II i-iv (finish for homework)

7. Sociogram Assignment - see handout. Due Tuesday April 19th.
