Honors 11: “Politics and the English Language”

We first went over our discussion leader assignment in depth before watching Frank Luntz on Colbert. We talked about what we heard and how it was similar to what Orwell said in his essay. I then gave you these questions to complete for Monday regarding “Politics and the English Language”. The annotated essay and questions will be turned in on Monday. We will talk about it then prior to discussing the first two chapters of 1984.

Homework: Finish the q’s for “Politics…” and read I.i-ii of 1984. DL Group #1 should read ahead through chapter 4.
