We will begin with your speeches. Please keep our discussion of body language in mind.
In the remaining time, you will became satirists. You will poke fun at the ridiculous and the ill-conceived. Since this teacher’s overview is so effective, let’s start here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PuvjDK3mpA0
Once we have a better understanding of satire, we will watch this clip; be prepared to tell me how it is satirical: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7L2fsubA2-c.
Finally, I want you to write a 200 word satire of something worth ridiculing. Sarcasm is encouraged.
