Today we finished watching “Batman Begins”. We continued to look for themes and quotes in the movie.
I handed back the Theme Paragraph Outline for “The Michelle I Know” as well as the quote sheets from Batman Begins that I collected last class.
We also began work on a second theme paragraph outline for a theme in Batman Begins (can be any theme). We will continue to work on this on Monday & prepare for the in-class paragraph.
Two Assessments coming up on Monday/Tuesday:
- Reading Log check
- In-class paragraph on theme. This paragraph can be about any theme in either “The Michell I Know” or “Batman Begins.”
*** I will have Chromebooks for the class in order to do the paragraph, but feel free to bring your own computer if you prefer.***
Come get your marked work from me when you’re back, and start working on a theme paragraph outline for Batman Begins: Composition 10 – Theme Paragraph Outline
