Before we get to that, however, we want to wrap up our mini-work with Langston Hughes' "Harlem." We will be discussing cause, effect, dreams, goals, wins and fails and completing a short analysis activity of the poem called a "Chalk Talk."
And then . . .
Note: Everything below is copied from the AP Lit blog entry from today. Why? Because Humanities & AP Lit are following the SAME PROCESS! 9th graders & 12th graders doing the same work?!! What is this madness?!?
From here we will do a few community building activities -- two quick ones and start a much more involved process: designing our space.
Each of the above will provide us an opportunity to dive into DESIGN THINKING, a human-centered way of approaching problem solving and creating.
Over the next couple of weeks we'll be exploring the ideas presented by David Kelley's IDEO, Stanford d.School & Mary Cantwell's DEEP Design Thinking.
For today though, we will be taking a page from Jillian Hinesley's work and shaping our learning space. We will follow the "See, Think, Wonder" learning routine.

I don't want to give every little nook & cranny away, but that's what will drive our first day.
And since you all worked so hard this summer -- or at least these past few days -- you have a three-day weekend to unwind and reset for our AP Lit Design Thinking/Literary Analysis & Composition Boot Camp arriving next Tuesday & Wednesday.
Don't forget: Designer Starter Kits! Get them in ASAP!
