Assignments due for the week of January 28th, 2019

Practical Public Speaking

So sorry we missed our opening day! You do not need to do anything until you get the “text” I will give you in class on Monday. Enjoy your week! 🙂

Adventures in American Literature

We will discuss last week’s work on Emerson, Thoreau, and Melville when we return to class. Read the short story “The Minister’s Black Veil” by Nathaniel Hawthorne.

Or you can choose to listen to the story:

Read the excerpts from “Dr. Heidegger’s Experiment” by Hawthorne on pages 86 & 87 in your notebook. Answer the questions on page 88.

No-Spin Economics

I missed our beginning day of class!! So that you can at least have a head start on our discussion of basic Economic philosophy, watch the following summary of Frederic Bastiat’s The Law. Fill out the study guide that I emailed to you and bring it to class next week.

Quick Looks at Great Books

Review all of the play Cyrano de Bergerac for our test. We will discuss the last two acts and do as much of the study guide as possible together in class. Try to complete the “Grand Gestures” for Acts IV & V on page 7 in your study guide. Also, complete page 8, which is a follow up of the grand gestures. Be sure to have your Literary Terms notebook in class with you if I have not yet checked it.

Watch the following final scene from the play:
