“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.” ~Edgar Allan Poe
Creative Writing 1 ~ Today is a catch-up day due to PSAT testing. You may work on work that needs completing, write, or visual journal in your writer’s notebook. HW: Don’t forget, have you done your Bus Lines poem yet?
Creative Writing 2, 3, 4 ~ Begin class with a 10-minute free write. Last call for the Haunted Hayride trip: reminders, forms, and admissions. Review and grade the worksheet for “The Raven” and “Lenore.” Watch Vincent Price’s reading of “The Raven.” Watch “The Simpsons” version of “The Raven.” Watch Tim Burton’s Poe-esque inspired “Vincent.” Watch Roman Dirge, “Lenore: the Cute Little Dead Girl.” HW: Read and complete the worksheet for “To Helen,” “Annabel Lee,” and “The Bells.” We will begin the mini-ws critique of all gothic fiction pieces. Those who do not have it must work silently on their stories and turn them in late!
