Today in our wonderful all gentleman's English class, we finished the movie Rope. At the ends of the movie, Rupert found out that Brandon and Phillip killed David. Rupert shot a gun out the window so that the police would come and arrest Brandon and Phillip for the murder. After we finished the movie we were handed a short story booklet where we marked page 27 of the story Most Dangerous Game. We found out that we need to read over the story and annotate it likewise:
1. How do words and actions affect who others become (highlight and explain)
2. Look for literary devices (highlight and explain)
3. Ask questions
Then, we discussed topic sentences. Ms. Smith showed us examples of good topic sentences:
Alfred Hitchcock's Rope explains who words and actions affect others; Rupert’s words influenced Brandon to kill because “superior individuals have the right to kill those who are inferior.”
