10H – 28 Jan 2014 – F451 Disc/Concept Mapping

Hmm. I didn’t expect a late start. Grr. This puts the two classes in an imbalance…because 7th hour gets only 29 minutes. SO. I’m going to abbreviate your concept mapping activity a little and eliminate a reading day Friday to compensate.

What that means for today:

  • We’ll start/finish our F451 discussion
  • Find homes for the Twitter quotes, as time permits

What that means for the week:

  • Wednesday – Concept mapping & presentation preparation (instructions to follow)
  • Thursday – Concept mapping & Presentation preparation
  • Friday – Class time will be for you to finish your concept maps and prepare your presentations for TUESDAY. Note this was supposed to be a reading day for “Education by Poetry” and “The Student, The Fish, and Agassiz,” two new critical reading essays. Even without a reading day, you will need to read/journal about these essays by WEDNESDAY, when we will discuss them.

Looking ahead:

  • Monday – Writing day in the lab. Lots of people still in proposal phase, with less than a month till the end of the trimester. EEEK.
  • Tuesday – Presentations
  • Wednesday – Discussion over The Student, The Fish, And Agassiz and Robert Frost’s “Education by Poetry” –both critical essays in our study of poetry.

  1. At the bottom of page 164 it says “But now there was a long mornings walk till noon, and if the men were silent it was because there was everything to think about and much to remember.” I think this quote is important because I think the long walk symbolizes the long time until things will be carefree and good and everything summer represents. So it shows that things are looking up and will get better but not right away.

  2. Towards the beginning of Burning Bright I noticed how Bradbury was leading readers into a false sense of security with Faber and Montag’s plan but then totally caught us off guard when the Salamander arrived in front of Montag’s house. I think it was the author’s way of explaining the chaos to come afterwards.
