Today we were graced with the presence of the Seattle Shakespeare Company. We learned how to insult each other and how to stage fight!
Today we spent some time re-imagining how school would look it we all followed Taoist principles. Then, we started talking about Sun Tzu (Sunzi) and The Art of War. We eventually figured out how to defeat our foes.
Your homework, due Wednesday, is to:
Today we spent more time with Confucius. It was glorious.
Your homework is to annotate this excerpt of the Analects. As you do, identify examples of parallelism, maxims, Li, Yi, and Ren.
Today we got a little derailed talking about Confucius, but we had fun and still managed to learn about Chinese history, the Mandate of Heaven, and the parallelism.
You don't have any homework, so that's cool.
Today we were welcomed back from break with an exciting district post-assessment! I was a great way to demonstrate what we've learned so far in this class.
We also got back our TFA papers, which was cool.
Your homework is to read this article on ActivelyLearn and leave 5 comments.
Today we decided that we already knew everything about writing papers and that our time would be better spent choreographing and writing music for an re-imagined musical version of Things Fall Apart set in futuristic Taiwan. The year is 3030, yams have overtaken the planet. Only one man can save us. We used our time today to design costumes, build sets, and hold auditions for the role of Okonkwo. Dress rehearsal is scheduled for tomorrow, please come prepared.
Alright, fine. We spent today revising and polishing our final drafts for Things Fall Apart. You have a final work day tomorrow, with your paper being due Friday by 10pm on TII.com.
Today we worked on our TFA papers (big surprise). We also did some peer reviewing.
