ATTENION ALL TOZZI STUDENTS!
Recently a former student told me they liked college because they had several hours between classes to consider and digest the material and discussions from the class session; whereas in high school you have to shift so fast, there's no time to consider, to reflect...to think.
So, in that spirit I am going to work on school stuff each day, in staggered 20-60 minute chunks. To get you started:
- AP Literature...start reading The Stanger. Take your time; read, think, talk...read and repeat. There's some background info on my website.
- Half year Lit and Comp...the text of The Hate U Give is on my website. You should be in the midst of chapters eight and nine. I will post the study guide soon.
- Art of Film: If you haven't already done so, please finish up the assignment for Forest Gump. I will post the research assignment for The Fighter. You can start informally researching if you're curious. In the meantime, if you're home watching movies and you see some foreshadowing and motif or other "film class stuff"...email me! It makes me smile to hear about your analysis! This goes fore Race and Gender in Film too!
- Race and Gender...do some researching about the reception and discussion of Get Out. Watch it again if you can, and over analyze it for your family members...a great staying the house activity. I'l post a more formal assignment soon!
So, please stay healthy, and email me with questions or concerns or a funny story -- that would totally count as writing with purpose!
MARCH 23 UPDATE! I have started getting to know Google classroom. I am sending out email invites (oooo, fancy) to join your class. I have started with AP Literature today. However, it wouldn't let me invite some of the students. I don't know why. So, if you are in AP Lit and didn't get an invite, please email me for the class code. Stay healthy, mi gente!
March 29 update! Students in all classes have been invited to Google Classroom Please join. If you didn't get an invite, please email me for your class code. As of today, there are no assignments in Google. Please check your class page on my website. Please remember -- you can make up any back work! Email me with questions!
