October 31

JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: Theme from the movie "Halloween"; "Masquerade" by Andrew Lloyd Weber]

Since it's Halloween, two options:
1. What role does fear (of death, of loss, of discovery) play in the play Hamlet?  What role does it play in your own life and decision-making process?
2. What masks do people wear in everyday life, i.e., how/why/when do we intentionally adopt personae that serve purposes other than reflecting who we are with integrity?

1. Journal
2. Cory Doctorow (zero period)
3. Finish Act V

1. Review "Performative Utterances" for quiz/discussion tomorrow (Thursday 11.1)
