Delicious Death
By Alma Luz Villanueva
Poetry
In this class, we read the novel Catcher in the Rye as one of our marking period projects. And it was the only novel we read in the school year. You will also have to do essays that will be about a universal theme, or a individual theme for each story that you decide to pick (three stories). Catcher in the Rye was a novel that a lot of people could relate to because the way that it was written made the audience think "This guy actually understands us, we're not being dramatic after all." Also, the guy who shot John Lennon (Mark David Chapman) read Catcher in the Rye at the crime scene after he shot Lennon.
Short stories are the stories where the reader has to actually figure out the theme, and most of the time the author makes the theme obvious. There will be time dedicated to short stories in this class as a lesson, and usually short stories will have artwork, short films, etc. Along with that, there'll be a packet with vocabulary words, questions, and activities to do while and after you're reading

In this lesson you'll learn a lot about poetry since it is a big topic. You'll also get a packet of notes and worksheets that will mostly be done in the classroom. You won't read as many poems compared to all the other things that you'll read during the year.
