Juniors: Continuing Modernist Poetry

This week, the Juniors in Room G17 will continue their practice analyzing modern poetry. We’ll start by considering how modernists understood the concept of “the self,” then consider how “the self” is represented in T.S. Eliot’s “The Love Song of Alfred J. Prufrock.” Students will study the poem, noticing modernist themes and styles.

In addition to our progress studying Modernism, students will be given time to read their choice book, discuss last week’s article of the week, practice ACT English questions, and build writing fluency with the online writing system, Criterion.

At home, students should read 30 minutes each night of a choice book and complete their choice article of the week. Both assignments are due next Monday.
