Over the weekend I have two or three things for you to take care of to prepare for next week. First, begin on your vocabulary study. Be aware that this is a standing assignment throughout the year. Whenever I ask to see your bookmarks you should have these and be able to show me that you have actively been working on these pieces. Remember that you will have to select five words for your cards and you will turn in five cards by the 6th of October.
Secondly, be sure that you have your five journals from being a Transcendentalist for the week. With the journals you'll complete a one page, typed, MLA format reflection. In the reflection, here are some questions to consider:
- What did you learn from this experience about yourself? Others? Society? How did you learn these things?
- What were some of your successes? Your failures? Why?
- How do you better understand this philosophy? Is it applicable in our world today?
The reflections are a space for you to write and process the experience. Show me that you are thinking and being considerate.
The third thing would be to go back through your work on King and review now that we've read the clergymen's letter. How can you better understand this piece given this context?
No homework for the weekend! Enjoy your time! Be ready to start reading comic books next week!
