Honors 11: Satire Projects + “Harrison Bergeron”

We finished watching the videos we didn’t get to yesterday before I handed out Vonnegut’s 1961 short story titled “Harrison Bergeron.” You were to read that before the end of the hour. There is one question on the test regarding its satiric intent. We will discuss it briefly prior to taking our exam. With “HB”, I asked you to write down the real-world issues that it’s satirizing, what elements KV utilized, and what type of satire it would be classified as.

You turned the audience reflection/self-reflection into my inbox (or if you didn’t finish, you can give it to me tomorrow).

Here’s some helpful information regarding the satire found in the chapters of our novel for continued review/studying. CAT’S CRADLE TEST TOMORROW!
