Could we make Spoken Word videos or audio clips? Would that be a feasible project?
If not, what culminating project do you propose? Poetry is ART; so how can we display it at PSM?

For homework, design our final project. Include:

  • A Description of the final product
  • The time it would take to complete it
  • The materials and tools we'd need to complete it
  • The roles the teacher and student would play in the project
  • The audience we'd be targeting with our product
  • How this project should be graded (rubric)


Journals due Tuesday, September 2nd

-Joan Didion

In Chinese, the word for crisis is wei ji, composed of the character wei, which means danger, and ji, which means opportunity.
-Jan Wong

You've got to be brave and you've got to be bold. Brave enough to take your chance on your own discriminations-what's right and what's wrong, what's good and what's bad
-Robert Frost

Don't measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should have accomplished with your ability.
-John Wooden

What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies.

I attribute the little I know to my not having been ashamed to ask for information and to my rule of conversing with all descriptions of men on those topics that form their own peculiar professions and pursuits.
-John Locke

Identity is not found, the way Pharaoh's daughter found Moses in the bulrushes. Identity is built. It is built every day and every minute throughout the day.
-Margaret Halsey
