This blog is a place you can come and get in-class and homework assignments. It's also a place that you can watch videos we've seen in class and for homework. This blog is also the place you'll go to get your work when I'm gone to Maui the next few days. Regrettably, I'm leaving tomorrow and not getting home until our fourth day of class. I won't be able to be here to start discussing Lost Stars or introduce your fanfiction assignment for this first unit. Honestly, I almost would rather be here to talk with you than be in Hawaii, if you can believe it.
What you'll need to do with homework while I'm gone, in addition to the first two readings for Lost Stars and the activities we'll do in class, is watch all four of the Star Wars history videos below and fill out the attached handout. Understanding the history of Star Wars is essential to your understanding of Lost Stars, especially if you haven't ever seen the movies, animated series, or read any of the new canon. The handout is due when I get back next Friday so make sure you watch these then because in my experience, there's no such thing as luck. I can't wait to start and get back next Friday and I look forward to talking with you then! May the Force be with you.
