Sophomore English

Today we finished reading Antigone. For our test review, each group wrote a song for a scene of the play. It may sound easy, but most students commented on how difficult it was to summarize the play and put it to music. I was really pleased with how immensely talented the students are. We will finish our performances of Antigone, the Musical on Monday and do a little writing. The test for the play will be on Wednesday.

Our next unit will focus on improving writing skills and preparation for the Utah Basic Skills Competency Test. Students will be tested the first week of February in the areas of Reading, Writing and Mathematics. These are the tests students must pass in order to earn a high school diploma.

After that, I will give the students a choice of what they want to learn. I’ll send you more information on that later.

  1. Were the songs original compositions or lyrics set to known songs? Very cool idea : )
