Before starting our viewing of the movie version of Into the Wild, we chose our Sounds of Senior Year CD cover. Congrats to the winning student! I'll post an image of the final product when we get our CDs next week.
The movie version of Into the Wild is proving to be just as adventurous as the book version. Actually, it could perhaps show a bit more of the adventure than the book because it follows Christopher McCandless's journey in a first person point of view. The presentation of Chris's life is much more intimate and close in this movie. We'll talk later about the effect of this version versus the book.
We will continue the movie next class. Please email your commencement speech drafts to me by the end of next week. I can't wait to read them and hear you deliver them in class!
