English 10: Animal Farm Ch. 1-2 Quizzes

We first took an individual short Ch. 1-2 Quiz that simply asked you to recall facts from the novel. There was an extra credit opportunity. Afterwards, we got into groups and were assigned important quotes from both of these chapters. We constructed then, in our groups, on a big sheet of butcher paper, a PID that included identification of the speaker and the context/situation, but then also the detailed explanation of the significance of this moment in the text. We discussed, prior to beginning work, what the significance or the analysis entails. We then had to switch groups and help another group’s PID analysis be developed even further. This got more and more difficult as we worked to find nuanced aspects of theme depiction, characterization, historical/allegorical parallels, political ideology, etc. Well done. We will finish work with this assignment on Monday.

HOMEWORK: Ch. 34 + annotations
