Scribe 2/7

In class we started with a quiz over chapters 1 and 2 of Dorian Gray and the background packet.

We had a fishbowl for about 30 minutes over chapters 1 and 2 and the outside circle live blogged.

Some of the topics were:
-relationships between Basil, Dorian, and Lord Henry
-influence Lord Henry has on Dorian
-Dorian's youth and beauty and how he perceives himself
-the different names that are used for the three characters and why they are used
-Wilde's use of sexual themes and motives in the characters
-how the painting of Dorian by Basil affects Dorian
-the fight over Dorian by Lord Henry and Basil
-is Oscar Wilde portraying himself in one or more of the characters

On Friday Dan Maas, the head of a Principal's organization, will come to talk to us about blogging, live blogging, the fishbowl, etc. to get ideas and opinions about those things. We may not have the fishbowl over chapters 3 and 4 on Friday but be ready just in case.

We got our reaction to the Preface papers back today as well.

Blog, read ch. 3-4, self-portrait project due Fri., semester project.

Whoever brought the donuts, they were good.
