Here is a story starter! Use this phrase to help you write a story:
“I will never forget the day I became a raccoon…”
TOMORROW: I will collect your notebooks. We are meeting here, dropping off your notebooks, taking attendance, and going to PAC to watch rehearsal of the play.
- Get a computer and log in
- Add Ms. Navarro’s Google Classroom
- Complete the assignment in Google Classroom, which is step THREE in your monologue assignment
- If you do not have steps one and two finished, you cannot do step three; I suggest you get busy!
REMEMBER THIS FOR YOUR CHECKLIST:
A monologue is a speech delivered by one person, who exposes inner thoughts and provides insights into his or her character.
Then, what shall we die for? You will listen to me! Listen! (stares into their eyes) The Brethren will still be looking here, to us, to the Black Pearl, to lead. (Pause) And what will they see? Frightened bilge rats aboard a derelict ship? No. No, they will see free men and freedom! And what the enemy will see is the flash of our cannons. They will hear the ring of our swords, and they will know what we can do. By the sweat of our brows and the strength of our backs, and the courage of our hearts. Gentlemen. Hoist the colors!
