5 MINS. STUDY TIME Time to look at study guide, to check any previous bell work notes, & to ask questions regarding the quiz
BELL WORK QUIZ Clear desks of everything aside from paper or pencil. Turn into tray when finished.
CHS. 7-8 Pearl may be taken away? Under what circumstances should a child be taken away from her mother in OUR society? Should Hester lose Pearl? Hester can keep the child because she will teach her a lesson about shame and mistakes. Is “to teach” a mandatory item on a parent’s job description? In what ways does Hester’s society have “mistakes?”
CHS. 7-8 What local authority figure has Pearl taken to, and who comes to Hester and Pearl’s aid when it is questioned why Hester should keep Pearl (same person)? Who still wants the authorities to find out Hester’s lover? What is their response? What does this man gain from exposing her lover? What all does this lover have to lose?
CHS. 7-8 Aside from the letter, what else is a constant reminder of Hester’s sin? Hester and this reminder’s identities are largely composed of society’s labels, but should we allow the same for ourselves? How is the governor’s mansion the opposite of a core Puritan belief about material things (think of how everything looked in The Crucible film)?
WHAT IS A SOCRATIC SEMINAR? Let’s watch the video and discuss what it looks like to you.
