Honors 11: Quiz of Synthesis + August Wilson Intro

We took this quiz in small groups of 3. One student uploaded your work to turnitin.com when time was called. For the last couple minutes of the hour I introduced Fences’ author, August Wilson with these notes specifically. Tomorrow we will take a quick look at and take notes on this interview. We will also look at this clip from The Cosby Show and analyze why Wilson may have found this show problematic.

Homework: You are reading Act I of Fences for tomorrow. We will watch some clips from Act I  then.

Here’s a short and interesting optional read we may not have time for about why school boards in Arizona have censored books that “promote racial resentment.”

Here’s the final exam review!
