This week has been quite a surprise for me. I am thoroughly impressed with how much you all are understanding--and sometimes even enjoying-- The Tempest by William Shakespeare. It is a difficult language to follow, but we are holding on and actually are getting quite a bit out of the play beyond just plot and character. We are starting to dive head first into theme, taking those topics and developing them into those statement on humanity, on human nature, and how we live life in this world.
I want to take this time to also thank all of you for being good role models during the assembly by being polite and respectful. You all rock!
This is where you can check and see a brief overview of what we have done as a class each week. My intention is to keep this up to date with happenings, assignments, trends, previews of the following week, and anything else that needs to be shared with my students and their families. I may not always get something written each week, but I will do my best to be disciplined in keeping you informed.
