    Shurley English 6 for May 1st

    Welcome to May!!! This week your assignment is Classical Composition, Fable Stage – Lesson #9 “The Thirsty Pigeon.”  Complete the lesson and email or text me a copy of your final draft by Friday.  I chose this lesson so that we could get practice using a few more FODs.  They are topographia, mimesis, and topothesia.  Remember, you do not have to keep the same characters in your story or even the same plot, but your story should illustrate the commonplace or moral of the story.
