Romanticism Wall Notes

Using the Romanticism Notes, make a mini-poster of the section assigned to you by Borger.  Use images from magazines to represent your idea. Paste your poster / image on construction paper. Put your name and assigned number on the back of the poster and turn in to Borger by the end of the hour on Tuesday 09/15.

“Sinners” & Autobiography

Monday 09/08: Read “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” & biography of Jonathan Edwards (44, 46-48).   Write the following response in your journal:

Select three quotes from the sermon (include in-text citations with page numbers).  Explain how each quote in some way represents the ideals of the Puritans from your readings & the posters on the wall. Should be roughly a ½ a page.   You should be moving beyond summary toward analysis – choosing evidence to support a claim.

Tuesday 09/09: Read from Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin & biography of Frankln (65, 68-72).  Write the following response in your journal:

Select three quotes from the excerpt (include in-text citations with page numbers).  Explain how each quote in some way represents the ideals of the Rationalists from your readings & the posters on the wall.  Should be roughly ½ a page.  You are moving beyond summary toward analysis – choosing evidence to support a claim.

Be prepared for a quiz over this material on Thursday 09/10.  Even if you are absent between now and then, you will be expected to take the quiz, so take your book home or have a friend bring it to you or use the Internet to stay on top of readings.

Friday, 09/11 is a DEAR Friday (Drop Everything And Read) – as per your request.  Bring a book of your choice to read on Friday or check one out from the library.

D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything and Read)

Friday, September 4th will be a Drop Everything And Read day.  Students need to bring a book to read for pleasure for the whole hour.  Magazines are not acceptable.  Reading silently activates the frontal part of the brain responsible for deep & complicated thinking.  I would like to cultivate growth in that area and reading something you actually enjoy will do that.
