Good Morrow…

24 Jul

Please bring whatever you have tonight.. printed!  That way, you can present it to us, even if you haven’t read through it thoroughly.  Just as well, think about how you want to present your ideas and what you’re looking for to support theses ideas.  So, in example:  I’m writing about the significance of boyhood, and how it shapes the latter adult male; I could use ‘Boy’s Life’ as evidence, what Jack went through, and how Mr. Wolff is in present day, linking his present-day strengths to his past struggles; and maybe finding some source in the psychological field to support the argument that early struggles lead to strength later on in life.  Just an idea…

Also tonight, we’ll watch a little more of ‘Boy’s Life’, seeing if there are ways we can use the film as a secondary source.

Enjoy your day, and I’ll see you tonight…


Final Paper Ideas…

23 Jul

Post here… We will workshop our ideas below. Please engage each other! I hope what we discussed tonight helped!

Cheers.. And be well in your respective eves.

What is your personal connection to Wolff’s book? That is, how are you [name] reading these pages like no one else in the world? Don’t reveal anything you don’t want to, just give us a couple lines on how only you can read this book how you are.. Touch on some experience, if you can.

Have a great day!
