6th Hour 1984 Final Assessment Scribe

Class was only 23 minutes long today, so we didn't
have a chance to do a lot. Mrs. Moritz started class
asking for registration cards that needed to be
signed, since she's not going to be at school
tomorrow. She then told us that our grades
updated and to check them as part of our homework. If
there is a mistake in your grade, print it out,
highlight it, and show it to Mrs. Moritz when she
comes back on Friday so that she can correct it. After
this, Mrs. Moritz introduced the final assessment
1984, which is a 3-5 pg, double spaced formal essay on
one of the following topics:

Chose one of the following options for your final assessment for 1984:
-1984 is a warning that Orwell wrote in the 1940's. What was he
warning us about? (2 specifics with explanations) How has it come true in
our society today? (2 specifics with explanations)
Typed, double spaced, formal essay format
-Write a new chapter in the novel 1984. Do Winston and Julia revolt?
Do they become proles? Is there a completely different ending? Does
Winston somehow become the new O'Brien? (stay true to the tone/form of
the original work)
Typed, double spaced, creative piece format
-In your life, who can you state "controls" you? Do they control
fear? Opportunity?
We would all like to say that we control ourselves, our actions, but is
this true? (use specific examples from your personal life)
Typed, double spaced, personal essay format

All essays are due Monday.

Next, Mrs. Moritz told us that tomorrow and Friday we
will be working on our semester projects in the lab.
during the hour on either Thursday or Friday
everyone has to complete a survey about Mrs. Moritz's
class. The survey can be found on her webpage on the
Arapahoe website, in the 1984 unit calendar. At the
end of class, students gave Mrs. Moritz their t-shirt
designs if they had them ready.
