American Literature: Due to the field trip to the Jefferson Labs, we will not have class on Tuesday, but Writing Assignment 1 is still due on Thursday, so please do not forget! Additionally, I gave you an assignment focused on Ralph Waldo Emerson, either “Nature” or Self-Reliance.” The instructions for that are available in Jupiter. We will be looking at Nathaniel Hawthorne during the rest of the week: Young Goodman Brown, The Birthmark, and Rappaccini’s Daughter.
Art History II: We will finish viewing The Impressionists, and there WILL be an assessment of your understanding of this material… [that means a QUIZ!]. Hopefully we will also get to the chapter on Post-Impressionism 1 in the textbook, but we may not manage to view IMAX: Van Gogh—A Brush with Genius and Gaugin, the Full Story this week. We will do what we can!
Contemporary Fiction: We are working on The Secret Life of Bees this week—a somewhat different book than the last one, but it still fits the definitions of contemporary fiction as it is definitely character driven. By Friday you need to have read through chapter 4 so that you can answer the journal prompt for the week!
Shakespeare's Comedies and Poetry: We begin Much Ado About Nothing this week—Beatrice and Benedick begin the play as a bickering pair, each of whom swears s/he will never marry, but we know how this play will end, don’t we? After all, it IS a comedy!
World Literature: This week we finish with our theme of Travel and Self-Recognition in the Face of the Other by examining a travel narrative from pre-modern Japan:
- Matsuo Bashō: The Narrow Road of the Interior (2108-2134)
- Postcards from the Narrow Road to the Deep North—a PowerPoint Presentation of haiku and the visual arts
- The Haiku Moment: Seeing the World in A Grain of Sand—writing haiku
Online Classes: please make sure that you are on track and on task!
This is a B week, but do NOT forget that Friday is a half-day with a noon dismissal.
