Today we…

  • Read the first page of “A Modest Proposal” by Jonathan Swift. This essay is meant to be read as a “joke” of sorts and will introduce a literary device that we will be studying this week. You can download a copy as a doc or pdf file.
  • Learned about a 3-part thesis statement and started pre-writing for our second Mini-Essay on 1984. You can download a copy as a doc or pdf file.

Homework:

  • Read & annotate “A Modest Proposal”.
  • Finish annotating 1984. I will check all of your annotations.
