ALSO CSAP IS DUE TOMORROW!!!!
Next in our class we had a fishbowl discussion on pages 224-298, in 1984.
Some of the topics we talked about were the actions of O'Brien and his relationship with Winston, how the society in this book runs off of fear and how this is coming true in our society. We also talked about why Orwell decided to write this book, and how we have selfishness as a human quality. Some questions were; what does fear mean, how has their situation come true in our society, how did Winston turn into loving Big Brother, and how did pain affect the way Winston reacted, and would we give up the people we love if we are being tortured like Winston,etc.

So this is what we did in our class today! Have a great night!
