En 10 blk 2 & 3 – Week 3

We all have dreamt of doing something great even if we know deep down it would never happen. We watch stories of heroes doing heroic things and we let our imagination go, “What if I could wield Thor’s hammer?” “What if I could sing like that” “What if I…?”

The story of Walter Mitty is about daydreaming to be someone you’re not. It’s about a guy with a boring life who wishes he was a hero. This week you will read a short story entitled, “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” and write a short story about you being a hero in your own imaginary situation. They have made it into a movie with Ben Stiller but I could only find it on Prime Video with the Starz subscription. If you have access then go ahead and watch it. Here’s a clip

Here and on Teams there is the PDF of the short story to read. Create a Word doc in the assignment to write your own story. You can also listen to me reading it if you find it easier to be read to! You can pretend we’re actually in class.
