MANDATORY PARENT MEETING ON MONDAY!
5:30 PM IN THE BAND ROOM
ALL PARENTS MUST ATTEND!
CALL A TEACHER IF YOUR PARENT CAN’T COME!
I hope you all had a great day of school yesterday, and I hope that everyone is having a great weekend. When you finish reading Act 2, please follow the Criteria for Success on this post. Also, don’t forget to take 5 notes per night (a total of 20 by Monday) and please tell your parents about the MANDATORY PARENT MEETING AT 5:30 ON MONDAY!
CRITERIA FOR SUCCESS
2. Describe 3 of the major events that took place in Act 2.
3. On p. 107, Mama says to Walter, “It ain’t much, but it’s all I got in the world and I’m putting it in your hands. I’m telling you to be the head of this family from now on like you supposed to be.” What does this quote mean? How does this quote reveal a commonly held stereotype from the 1950s?
4. After having read this much in the book, what do you think the major connections are between the Langston Hughes poem, “Dreams” and the plot of the play? Why do you think Lorraine Hansberry used that poem to start off the play?
Good luck, happy reading and happy blogging!
