We’re going to skip our usual writing day and move the deadline for Task 5 out one week because I literally got back to my house yesterday at 6 p.m. and haven’t looked at or responded to ANYTHING yet. So I’m buying us a week.
In lieu of the writing day, we’ll do three things:
- We’ll do a gallery walk of the art you created during Fire & Ice. In fifth hour as you walk, I’m going to ask you to complete this Gallery Walk Peer Sheet.
- Then we’re going to watch a TED Talk by Karen Thompson Walker, author of The Age of Miracles, a book I really loved. I listened to this talk over break, and Walker references the Nabokov essay we read (!!!). I think listening to this talk will help solidify the differences between “artistic” and “scientific” reading.
- We’ll talk about the TED Talk. Like circle it up and talk, talk. Because the truth is we haven’t gotten to TALK much since we’ve been doing Fire & Ice the last many days. 🙂
Tomorrow, we’ll start Midsummer, as you can see from the Calendar for the rest of our 10H year together that I’m giving you today.
