Orwell and Colonialism

Hello there absent seniors, we miss you.

Today in class there was a quiz (20 points) based on what we did in class on Monday, which was a whirlwind tour (aka Sparknotes)of Things Fall Apart.

Then we moved on to a riveting definition and discussion of the differences between colonialism and imperialism. The was a prelude to reading Orwell's essay "Shooting an Elephant".

After we read the essay, present class members took five minutes and answered the objective question of the day, which was:
"How does Orwell convey his feelings towards colonialism in his essay "Shooting an Elephant?" (5 points)
