#003 – Written monologue
Write your monologue keeping in mind the requirements, who your character is, what the tone should be, and the conflict.
Type your monologue. Mark up your monologue by underlining, highlighting, and changing font colors to demonstrate where the check list is met. Make a key for me to follow.
Look back at your notes from the PowerPoint to determine what is NECESSARY for a monologue. Do you remember that slide that looked like a rubric? Make a check list.
#001 – Character Sketch
Please type and answer the character sketch questions. Due at the end of the day for ten points. All questions must be answered in complete sentences and with proper grammar.
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, my name is Ms. Navarro and I represent Mr. Wolf. The poor guy just can’t catch a break. Did he mean to blow down their house? Well…Yes. But he isn’t charged with destruction of property, instead he is charged with harassing the pigs and trying to hurt them. Does this look like the face of a murderer? No! Look at that face! He was blowing their house down, but had no idea they were inside.

These three days are dedicated to the BURP (Before Undertaking Reading Prepare) project! PowerPoint or Google Slides must be submitted on Google Classroom no later than Thursday at 11:59 PM. Looking forward to your engaging lessons!
The last two days were spent working on introductions and thesis statements for the F451 essay. They are due for homework if not completed in class. Turn in on Google Classroom. Yes, we are on Google Classroom now!!
Ways to start an introduction:
- an intriguing example—for example, Douglass writes about a mistress who initially teaches him but then ceases her instruction as she learns more about slavery.
- a provocative quotation that is closely related to your argument—for example, Douglass writes that “education and slavery were incompatible with each other.” (Quotes from famous people, inspirational quotes, etc. may not work well for an academic paper; in this example, the quote is from the author himself.)
- a puzzling scenario—for example, Frederick Douglass says of slaves that “[N]othing has been left undone to cripple their intellects, darken their minds, debase their moral nature, obliterate all traces of their relationship to mankind; and yet how wonderfully they have sustained the mighty load of a most frightful bondage, under which they have been groaning for centuries!” Douglass clearly asserts that slave owners went to great lengths to destroy the mental capacities of slaves, yet his own life story proves that these efforts could be unsuccessful.
- a vivid and perhaps unexpected anecdote—for example, “Learning about slavery in the American history course at Frederick Douglass High School, students studied the work slaves did, the impact of slavery on their families, and the rules that governed their lives. We didn’t discuss education, however, until one student, Mary, raised her hand and asked, ‘But when did they go to school?’ That modern high school students could not conceive of an American childhood devoid of formal education speaks volumes about the centrality of education to American youth today and suggests the significance of the deprivation of education in past generations.”
- a thought-provoking question—for example, given all the freedoms that were denied enslaved individuals in the American South, why does Frederick Douglass focus his attentions so squarely on education and literacy?
Both days were spent finishing monologue sketches. They are turned in on Google Classroom, due TONIGHT.

Review thesis requirements.
Step 1: I will write an essay prompt on the board. I vary my questions between informative and argumentative topics.

Step 3: I will randomly select two groups to compete.
Step 4: Each group will now write their thesis on the board.
Step 5: I will edit the statements with you and choose a winner.

Sneeze: What is up with the “family” in F451? In what ways are they Mildred’s family, and in what way aren’t they? What is the role of irony in this statement? How do you feel about this being her family?
What are the three types of irony?
Dramatic – we know something as the audience that the characters do not
Situational – whatever you would naturally expect to happen does not happen…in fact the exact opposite does!
Verbal – saying the opposite of what you mean; sometimes this is sarcasm
