My AP Language class is reading Huck Finn. I have split the book up into four sections and each class into four groups. Each group is responsible for coming with an activity for their section and leading a whole class discussion. They have been doing a wonderful job. This is the activity that the group from today came up with. They created images for all of the major events and wrote descriptions of these events. They backed them with magnets and put the images and descriptions up on the white board. They then had the students come up and connect the words and images, then they worked as a class to create a timeline.
This article about the most, and least, emotional countries is fascinating. It could be used to spur many different conversations in the classroom. I found this bit the most interesting:
Singapore is the least emotional country in the world. ”Singaporeans recognize they have a problem,” Bloomberg Businessweek writes of the country’s “emotional deficit,” citing a culture in which schools “discourage students from thinking of themselves as individuals.” They also point to low work satisfaction, competitiveness, and the urban experience: “Staying emotionally neutral could be a way of coping with the stress of urban life in a place where 82 percent of the population lives in government-built housing.”
We are starting To Kill a Mockingbird in my
11th grade class. I love the story and the message behind it. The biggest obstacle I have is how to get struggling readers to look past some of the difficult phrasing and latch on to the characters.
I have noticed that my students have a hard time figuring out Atticus. He is not a character they are use to and this is why adore him. To help with understanding, I am thinking about using other people’s words instead of just my own this semester to see if this helps my students
Every year I discuss the idea of pop culture with my students. We talk about how what is popular affects the way we look at the world and the literature that is written at any given time. This article talks about a piece of pop culture in one European city. I am going to use it as a jumping off point for my discussion this year.
