Humanities: Roots Quiz 4, Photo Essays & Of Mice & Men

We'll start with Roots Quiz 4.  Look for it in your e-mail. Word Map #4 due today as well.

From there, we'll arrange the room in similar fashion to what we did in yesterday's class. Those folks who want more T-direction, sit near the T, the further way you sit, the more independently you believe you can work today.

That work will revolve around understanding photo essays, much as yesterday involved getting an understanding of StoryCorps.

Note: What would be great material for a blog post?  Find a photo essay or a story corps story, link to it on your blog and share your thinking/reaction.

Explore the Photo Essays found on the TIME Magazine Website:
Using the same questions as yesterday for continuity:
  • What sort of stories would you want to see?
  • What sorts of stories are you seeing on this site
  • How might you be able to capture these sorts of stories?

Reading aloud (two rooms)Time for the second Three4Thinking (Due Tuesday 11/12).
