Thursday, March 30th

We discussed chapters 7-10, including the concept of ZEITGEIST.  We wrote a short composition comparing and contrasting the zeitgeist of the “World State” and the “Savage Reservation” or the religious ritual in both societies.

Because we ran out of time, we shall finish discussing chapters 9-10 next class, and go over PROPAGANDA and ADVERTISEMENTS.

You can read chapters 11-12 for Wednesday’s class.

Tuesday, March 28th

We finished discussing chapters 5-6, noting the over stimulation of the senses, the satire of contemporary society, and the class’ postings on the homework site.  We then did a plickers quiz of chapters 7-8 and then we continued our competition and discussion of chapters 7-8.

Please post your favourite quotation from chapters 7-8 and comment on why you chose it.

Read chapters 9-10.  We will be writing in class on the novel on Thursday.

Friday, March 10th

Those who did their homework earned $50 000 each for their corporation.  The moral of this story is:  do your homework, which for next class is to read chapters 7-8 AND to post your favourite quotation exclusively from chapters 5-6, and comment on its significance.

We discussed the remaining ideas from chapters 3-4 with the help of your posted quotations, and then we covered chapters 5-6 with our “capitalist competition” with “PLICKERS” AND “TODAYSMEET”.

As we did not finish everything that needed to be discussed, we shall do so next class.   Please post this BEFORE next class.  If it doesn’t appear immediately, don’t worry.  I have to approve it before it is posted
