All Boys, All Blogged: January 20, 2015

Focus: Can a good person commit an evil deed and still be a good person?

1. Warming up...did you do your act of kindness?

2. Hopefully, viewing the film version of Act 1 with same focus as yesterday:

In your "Ye Ole Daily Class Log" document, please try out the following tasks:
  • Find two symbolic choices made by the director.  Consider the actors, colors, objects, movements, and anything else that involved the director making a specific choice in turning this play into a film.
  • Why do you think he made these choices?
  • What did the film specifically help clarify for you?

3. Acting out Act 2, scene 1 with the following tasks:

Note to self/class: I need a bell person.
  • When you see any images that might represent good, evil, or guilt (or lack of guilt), please mark them.
  • Keep looking for your word trace word.
4. Gathering with ye ole "I like people" groups

  • Topic #1: How do you, personally, define the terms "good" and "evil"?
  • Topic #2: How do you, personally, define "conscience"?  Does everybody have one?
  • Topic #3: In Act 2, when Macbeth is hallucinating the dagger, which words connote good and/or evil?  How?  Overall, what might the dagger symbolize?

1. Update your word trace entries for Act 2, scene 1.

2. Your www.noredink.com assignment, "Commonly Confused Words," is due, really due, by class on Thursday.  It's nowhere near as annoying as hyphens.

3. Bring your banned book to class Friday. If you have time, start reading it this week.

  1. I think that it depends on how evil the evil deed is. Because if it isn't that evil than I think he could be good again, but if it is really evil such as murder I don't think that the person could be considered good again.
