Humanities: Learning to Love You More and The End of the Year

Learning to Love You More lands on May 30th as we create a massive installation in the Food Court that people can witness before attending the final concert of the music department.

The rubric for your individual contribution is here.

Besides Learning to Love You More, you may have some past due work to get in. This includes:

Remember, we have also laid out the expectations for the final

The final will include :

  • Reading and Responding (text connections and double entry journals)
  • Graded Class Discussion
  • Five Paragraph Essay (what you learned about yourself and others this year)
  • Media Product (create any product you like to demonstrate what you have learned about Humanities this year)

Remember, you will not have your laptops after June 6.  (You have to turn them in during the day on June 7.)

That gives you about two weeks from now to work digitally.


Humanities: Impromptu Music Appreciation Day

Today we had planned to talk about Little Brother, the challenges of weighing privacy vs safety, and the ways in which one can take action when one disagrees with authority.

And we did that for a little while when it became apparent that people didn’t know who Bruce Springsteen is, or Fleetwood Mac, or Ani DiFranco, or Bob Dylan, or Nirvana, or Pearl Jam.

We sought to rectify this in the last 20 minutes or so of class today.


Little Brother organizers (1 – 6) are due on Friday

Flocabulary #2: Shakespeare is Hip Hop – Quiz next Thursday – Exercises due next Thursday

Learning to Love You More  – 7 assignments and accompanying artist statements due May 30th.

Don’t forget to turn in your essay that was due this past Monday
