American Literature: On Tuesday, you will have a last class to work on your tombstones and obituaries for your writers from the Early American Literature 1700-1820: An Expanding World leads to an Enlightenment, a Great Awakening, and a National Identity unit. The tombstones and obituaries are due on Thursday, February 28th! On Friday we will talk about Writing Assignment 1 [details in your syllabus] on Tuesday, March 26th.
Art History: Instead of doing a Glogster as a way of exploring woodblock prints last week, we worked with Teacher James on making our own woodblocks for printing. We will join Teacher James again on Tuesday to finish carving our woodblocks in order to experience some of the process used in Ukioy-e. With any luck, we should be able to print from the blocks before the end of the week! As Josh noted an interest in Indian art, we will look at a couple of documentaries dealing with India and Mughal art and architecture. After the break we will move on to art of the Revolutionary Era.
Publications & Media: Do we have a theme for the 2012-2013 yearbook? This needs to happen THIS WEEK so that we can determine what pictures we need to take!
Shakespeare’s Comedies: We will finish watching Love’s Labour’s Lost and then move on to reading A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Web 2.0: Tips, Tricks, and Tools: Remember that you must post your ten educational phone apps, annotated and reviewed for usefulness, on our blog by Wednesday, February 27th by 10:00 AM!
World Literature: We will be reading the introduction to and "The General Prologue” from Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales before turning to “The Miller’s Prologue and Tale” [pages 1163-1169 and 1170-1204] as we continue with our Travel and Self-Recognition in the Face of the Other unit.
This is a B week.
