Upward Bound ENGLISH 2005
In English, we stated off with children's books.
Everybody had to choose a foreign children's
book to evaluate and read.
Afterwards we discussed a "Hero's Journey."
A hero's journey includes the four S's:
~ Someone wants Something, Stuff happens
and there is a Solution. We studied
"a hero's journey" with the book
ChueFu and Jer: Dumb Bull and Goddess of the Sky
Arrow to the Sun.
Taking a step away from the "hero" subject,
English dove into teenagers from the 70's to
teenagers today. We used "American Graffiti"
and short stories to evaluate whether or not
teenagers' life is harder now compared to back
then. We then had a choice to write a research
paper of an anecdote paper referring to our
belief of adolescence.
All the while our fun was found in the little
skits and plays Mrs. Greenwood told to us
and some even required our participation.
