Good day Grade 9s,
Today in class, we listened to Billy Collins read his poem, “The Lanyard.” We discussed why the audience found his message funny. We then discussed how children often do not understand the full extent that their parents go to to ensure their safety, protection and well-being.
After we completed the poem, we wrote a compare and contrast thesis statement on the poem and the novel.
We then read some of the myths behind constellations. Next class you will be writing your own constellation myth.
See you Thursday,
