Thursday (9-18-08)

Today we…

  • wrote an in-class, timed essay (using open notes) on the following question: Do you think “Waiting” was a tragedy, comedy, or tragicomedy (a combination of both)? Why?

Homework: Due Monday (9-22-08)

  • Watch the film “Knocked Up” by Judd Apatow. It is a good, modern example of a Shakespearean comedy. Be prepared to have a discussion about the following: character flaws, conflict, opportunity to overcome character flaws, and resolution/conclusion.
  • I will be screening the film at 12:30 on Thursday after our minimum day and at 2:45 on Friday after school is out in my room (LPS-17).
