Monday part deux

Finish writing your Orwell emulation.


Read “A Hanging” and note how Orwell makes a persuasive case.


You will all meet with me on Thursday, January 10, for the timed essay. You are responsible for all we have read this semester.

Orals begin Friday.

See the links at the right of this page for the entire Orwell packet consisting of seven essays.
