April 29*

One of the most extremely postmodern authors of his/our time was Hunter S. Thompson, who (after copying Gatsby word for word) once wrote, "There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. Some kind of high powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and to rare to die."

Hunter also wrote, "When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro."

You have a choice: either apply the first quote to Billy and/or Kurt Vonnegut, or apply the second to yourself... (more on these options in class)

1. Journal
2. Review/discuss S5 chapters/notes

1. Double-check your active reading notes and comment on >3 of your colleagues'.
2. Read/take notes on Chapters 4 & 5 (and publish to your blog under the title SCHLACHTOF FUNF)


  1. Just thought of an about acting out a scene or part of *insert book,movie,play ect here*

  2. I'm excited for the project. Finish our English class with a BANG!!!! Our own custom project that expresses who we are as individual thinkers. I was thinking of making a video of all the things we have been doing from the beginning to end!

  3. Field trip. i don't know where but lets go somewhere haha period 1 & 2 !

    1. I'm all for a field trip! �� Maybe to a play where we can see some postmodern story telling take place.
