Humanities 2BG: 9/11 and Caine's Arcade


On Friday, we started class by listening to this StoryCorps story of a husband and father talking about losing his wife on 9/11.

Mr. Brackett and I both shared our experiences on 9/11 and answered some clarifying questions, cleared up a couple of misconceptions.  It was quite a serious discussion and I was impressed with the seriousness and respect with which the class handled it.
Global Cardboard Challenge.

Then we allowed ourselves to breathe a little joy into the room again as we introduced the Imagination Foundation's Global Cardboard Challenge by watching Caine's Arcade from Nirvan Mullick.

We will hold our cardboard challenge on either October 8th or October 13th.  (We are still trying to figure that out.)  In either case, you will have two weeks in class to design a cardboard product that either . . .

a) Solves a Problem
b) Brings Others Joy
c) Demonstrates a Passion

The other Humanities class is doing this project and perhaps other classes as well.
