We'll start class with an affinity mapping exercise to prime our brains for a graded class discussion on Wednesday.
It will involve sorting our Lot Jot questions and trying to find common qualities amongst the questions we ask. Our goal: to determine the qualities that make up effective, meaningful questions. Thus, we'll start by sorting our questions into categories and threads that make sense to us. And then we'll describe them.
This should put us into a good place for asking powerful, important questions about "J. Alfred" on Wednesday.
As should . . . .
Analyzing one or two more of our poems. We did a great job with Weise's "Goodbyes" last week.
How do we want attack Smith's "Shoulda Been Jimi Savannah" or Rasmussen's"Skyscrapers?"
