American Literature: Don’t forget: you have an assignment for your reading of Saul Bellows’ excerpt from The Adventures of Augie March and the excerpt from Jack Kerouac’s Big Sur. On Tuesday we will read an excerpt from M. Scott Momaday’s The Way to Rainy Mountain [2702-2713], and then we begin Poetry Island Survivor on Thursday! I am looking forward to this!
Art History II: We will finish the textbook and the last unit: The Twentieth Century on Monday:
- Traditional Easel-Painting
- The Popularization of Art
Poetry & Nonfiction: We have some poems to share from people who were not here for Poetry Friday. Then I would love to have you copy your “shape” poems onto nice paper so we can display these on the bulletin board as they were really very clever! Finally, we will have time to work on your reflections for the Poetry Selections/Collections and on your final projects.
Shakespeare's Tragedies and Histories: We will finish reading out Hamlet! Once we are done, we will watch the Kenneth Branagh film which he starred in and directed. Please don’t forget about your final project—this will be due before you know it!
The Word--The New Testament: First we begin the week with An Afternoon with the Apostles, your final project for the course. The presentations are due on Tuesday, and if you don’t present on time, there may not be another opportunity, so be sure you are here and ready to embody one of these fascinating people! Then, we move on, as promised, to The Matrix trilogy… How many references can you find to the New Testament?
World Literature: We will continue with our unit of Trying to Discern the Thought of the Other by finishing Murasaki Shikibu’s The Tale of Gengi, chapter 4, “Evening Faces” [we begin at the top of page 1332 and end at page 1344]. Then we are flipping weeks 18 and 19 and will watch The Kite Runner as you have an assignment for this film—a BioPoem for one of the characters.
Online Classes: please make sure that you are on track and on task as you are gearing up for final exams.
- AP Comparative Government: when are you scheduled to take the final exam?
- AP Psychology: when are you scheduled to take the final exam?
- Creative Writing: you have scheduled your final exam for Friday at 11:00.
- Latin II: You have a notebook check due on Tuesday, the 24th.
We are down to the last two weeks of school before final exams, so please stay on track and finish the year well!
This is an A week.
