I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
In today's class, we spent the first ten minutes in our "reading" zen/zone and then students worked individually on their body paragraph outlines for the research paper. I made sure to walk around and give feedback on everyone's outline so that they would feel confident about completing the outline for homework. During the last 40 minutes of class, we began watching our Holocaust trickster tale, Life is Beautiful, and taking notes on the archetypal attributes of the trickster character (handout). This Oscar award winning movie provides us a great intersection between our trickster research and our independent study of the Holocaust memoir Night. While students watched the movie, I checked annotations in chapters 8-9 and collected the Night analysis packet (minor assessment grade).
Homework: Complete outline of body paragraphs with information from both informational sources (C1-E1) and trickster stories (C2-E2).
