Transcript: "We had defended ourselves since memory against everything and everybody, considered all speech a code to be broken by us, and all gestures subject to careful analysis; we had become headstrong, devious, and arrogant. Nobody paid us any attention, so we paid very good attention to ourselves. Our limitations were not known to us—not then." ~Claudia "It had occurred to Pecola some time ago that if her eyes, those eyes that held the pictures, and knew the sights—if those eyes of hers were different, that is to say, beautiful, she herself would be different." ~Pecola Love is never any better than the lover. Wicked people love wickedly, violent people love violently, weak people love weakly, stupid people love stupidly, but the love of a free man is never safe. There is no gift for the beloved. The lover alone possesses his gift of love. The loved one is shorn, neutralized, frozen in the glare of the lover’s inward eye." ~Cholly "She was never able, after her education in the movies, to look at a face and not assign it some category in the scale of absolute beauty, and the scale was one she absorbed in full from the silver screen." ~Pauline Born on February 18, 1931, in Lorain, Ohio, Toni Morrison is a Nobel Prize- and Pulitzer Prize-winning American novelist, editor and professor. Her novels are known for their epic themes, vivid dialogue and richly detailed black characters. Among her best known novels are The Bluest Eye, Song of Solomon and Beloved. Morrison has won nearly every book prize possible. She has also been awarded honorary degrees. Main Characters The setting is in Lorain, Ohio, in the following years of the Great Depression, and it tells a story about an eleven-year old girl named Pecola Breedlove. Pecola's one wish to have blue eyes so she can be as beautiful and beloved as the blonde, bye-eyed children. She believes if she has blue eyes she'll be able to see the world as a better place and everything in her life will be different from what it is now. In the autumn of 1941, the marigolds in Pecola's family garden did not bloom. The absence of the marigolds signifies the drastic changes about to happen in Pecola's life. Theme: Race and that white skin is greater. It is portrayed through the lives and stories told by the characters, especially the three girls Claudia, Pecola and Frieda. Through the struggles those people have endured, Morrison shows us the destructive effect of this internalized idea of white beauty on the individual and on society. Meaningful Elements: Number of elements that relate closely to Toni Morrison’s own personal life. Her hometown, Lorain Ohio Shows how vulnerable a young black girl, such as herself, is as she is exposed to this implied white beauty and superiority and racism through subtle messages throughout the book Toni Morrison I chose The Bluest Eye because it depicts the struggles of a young girl's life and how she had this outrageous wish for her eyes to turn blue. I wanted to read this novel so I could grasp her reasoning to why she wanted eyes to be blue so badly. Plus when Mr. Pk described it, it sounded like great book. "Catchphrase" The Bluest Eye By: Toni Morrison Taslima Bacchus Pecola Breedlove: Protagonist, passive, and a mysterious character Claudia MacTeer: Narrator of some parts either in the perspective of child or in the perspective of an adult looking back Cholly Breedlove: Pecola's father, sympathetic figure, negative form of freedom Pauline Breedlove: Pecola's mother, inflicts a great deal of pain on Pecola

Creating a Catchphrase

Transcript: Using past tense in catchphrases makes it sound like it refers to a specific thing that already happened. The broader it is the better it will fit. Creating a Catchphrase Ex: “Never send a human to do a machine’s job,” from “The Matrix,” probably wouldn’t be as catchy if it were “Never send a person to do a machine’s job.” Have Fun Source: The more applicable a catchphrase is the more it will catch on. Making it too specific to one group or person limits a catchphrase's flexibility. Typically, catchphrases are memorable when they are 10-12 words or less You don't have to be creative to create 2. Use Boring Syntax Sing it or say it? To rhyme, or not to rhyme? What is the goal/purpose of your department? What three words best describe your department? What three words best describe what your department does? Who's your audience? (who/what group of people will you be saying the catchphrase to?) People respond to positive emotions much better than negative ones. Joyful messages stick more than sad or depressing ones so remember to keep it light and fun! 6 Helpful Tips "Have a magical day!" "Theyyy're Grrrrreat!" "There's no place like home" "Easy breezy beautiful cover girl" "You're the weakest link!" "Here's looking at you, kid" Some helpful tips to get started Teaming up with a buddy to brainstorm some ideas can be a great way to break through those creative blocks. Use the questions and the following tips to brainstorm ideas. You can also brainstorm solo if that's how you roll. Questions to ask 6. Keep it Short Here are some tips that will help give your creativity a little jump start. These tips are adapted from the Cornell University Article "You had me at hello: How phrasing affects memorability" on the BuzzFeed News "The 6 Steps to a Perfect Catchphrase" website. Creativity isn't just random strokes of brilliant genius. Rarely does creativity work that way. Creativity is simply the use of problem solving and critical thinking skills. The following are some tips and questions to get those creative problem solving juices flowing. 4. Keep it in the Present This just means keeping the catchphrase as close to common language as possible. Ex: “I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship” vs. “This, I think, is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” 3. Avoid Personal Pronouns 5. Use your lips Ex: “Well, nobody’s perfect.” Here, “nobody” is literally all-inclusive Popular Catchphrases Catchphrases with less common words that aren't too long are more distinctive. 1. Use Interesting words Memorable catchphrases use the "front sounds" that your lips make. Words with the letters m, v, f, p, b work best. Buddy Brainstorm Ask yourself, if I had to repeat this over and over all day long, day after day, week after week, month after month, how long or short am I really going to want this to be? "May the force be with you" Ex: “There’s no place like home.” That’s just a true thing. “There was no place like home.” sounds like you’re just about to tell a sad story about how your home burned down
