We completed in small groups the Notice/Focus work from yesterday regarding the Bahamas ad from the 2013 Superbowl Ad. Here’s some additional information about the Bahamas. I also gave you this helpful handout regarding Encoding and Decoding to assist in deciphering between meanings that are apparent and those that are below the surface.
After this, I introduced Jamaica Kincaid, an Antiguan-American author, and her mostly non-fiction (some is slightly fictionalized, however) and part auto-biographical book, A Small Place. You are reading the first chapter for homework and writing a 2-sentence summary of HER ARGUMENT. Email this to me by 7:40 a.m. and make sure your hour is in the subject line.
