objective: Students will deepen their understanding of the scapegoat archetype by analyzing “Catching Hell” and preparing for Socratic Seminar.
& Prep for discussion. What do these events say about human nature? What do they say about sports fans – or is this not just a problem in sports? What are we supposed to gain from understanding these events more fully?
HW: In addition to preparing for your Socratic Seminar, please write a 1-2 page, double spaced, personal narrative about an experience you’ve had with scapegoating. First person or third person – your choice. Include strong sensory detail and figurative language. This is a rough draft. Bring to class, either in Google Drive or on paper, for Monday.
