We’re back! I hope everyone had a wonderful track out.
We are going to be wrapping up our first theme (identity) with a seminar on Friday. Students will have several different readings to annotate throughout the week in preparation for the class discussion. Our seminar will be based around the question, “Should we be proud to be Spartans?” It is very important that the students spend some quality time annotating the readings so that they are prepared to have an in depth discussion.
While preparing for the seminar, we will begin our introduction to poetry. We will discuss the format of a poem, poetic devices and figurative language. All of this can be found on my wiki, www.mrsbarrowsclass.pbworks.com.
Thank you to those of you that have already send in glue sticks. They are greatly appreciated! Have a wonderful week!
