Growth As A Poet
Poem Final Draft and Artist Statement
Genocide a Century of Death
Genocide Project Reflection
At the beginning of the year, the class came up with a list of expectations for the teacher and students. We did a reflection to see if we are meeting all of the standards. Heres a link to my reflection.
The Hero's Journey
For this project we learned all about the hero's journey. Not just the characters in our stories go through this, we all are on the hero's journey. We studied the 12 different stages, what they really mean, and how they have affected our lives so far. Here is my final project for the first part of this unit. We have dived much deeper into the hero's journey.
For the next part of the hero's journey unit, the class read the book The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. This book connected to the hero's journey and gave us insight into the difficulties of being Native American. Jr, the main character of the story goes through many trials, he is tempted, and he is transformed. This story shows that you don't have to be a prince or knight to go through the hero's journey. We also learned about Native American history and made many connections to the book and articles we read. When the class finished the book, we had a socratic seminar on the main points made in the book, and how it all was connected. Here is the link to my Seminar Reflection.
