A brief summary of what happened daily in Mr. Phillips's classes

LA 10 (skills) 9/17/12

Today we started with our poem of the day, “A Supermarket in California” by Allen Ginsberg. Next we went on to discuss ballads, and I showed the example of a ballad that was sung in a clip from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I then assigned the ballad synthesis (a fancy word for creation) assignment. Along with this I handed out the example of “Two Ogres” for everyone to look at during class.

Due today: Book assignment, blank verse/free verse worksheet, and connotation/denotation packet (about half of you had turned that in already).
