“Hello Everybody!” “Hello Smith!”
First, after everyone filed into class, we sat down and took our SAT quiz on lessons 1-6. If you were done then you could work on your symbolic element project for 451 while people were still working on the quiz. After everyone finished with the quiz, we watched four videos of different movie trailers.
The first one was a trailer for the Transformers; it had intense music, it flashed through quick scenes so you don’t know exactly what’s happening and you are given ‘key phrases’ but you don’t know the plot. The second trailer was for The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus; it showed the famous actors and directors and it switched between the narrator and different quotes in the movie. The third trailer was for The Color Purple; this trailer was missing the plot (it only introduced the characters) and it had a positive spin. The last trailer we watched was on The Blair Witch Project; it makes you scared because it is a girl talking in a shaky voice and it was just a simple black screen.
After watching the trailers, we worked on our symbolic elements until the end of the period.
