Go ahead and complete the writing invitation on your own. You will need to post on the discussion board to get credit for the Socratic seminar. You can use the prompts in this PowerPoint, start your own topic relating to Oedipus, or respond to a peer's post. You have your timed writing tomorrow! Make sure to print the prompts off of my website and follow the directions for your planning sheet!!! Today's Model: Using What You Know
Sometimes it is helpful to pull from something you are familiar with and use that familiarity to add a new twist or communicate your own message. Several authors have used famous works (especially fairy tales) to influence their own writing (though, as always, they must be cautious about copyright laws!) Today we will be reading a version of Snow White from a collection of "contemporary feminist fairy tales in North America and England" called Don't Bet on the Prince. What is similar to traditional versions of Snow White? What stands out in this particular version, and what might the author's purpose be? Writing Invitation #7
Would you like to pick a fairy tale or other wellknown story and use it to communicate your own message? How can you use commonly understood elements to assert a new position? OR Work to re-write one of your previous works. (Your writer's workshop time next week will be used solely for this, so don't feel pressured to get that done today) Block day, October 7 ,8
