Friday Update

Boy it's been a busy eventful week in and out of the classroom. I had to spend a lot of time in meetings this week, so I'm sorry the blog hasn't always been up to date.

Yesterday we had a mini-lesson on archetypes and you started working with your group to create a presentation with examples of character and situational archetypes. The real challenge here is more about working in your group on a presentation in Google Docs, but at the same time you will firmly root in your brain the knowledge of various common archetypes and you will know what I mean the next time I ask you to analyze the archetypes in a story. Plus you'll never watch a movie the same way again because now you'll be seeing all the archetypes and the ways film makers play with them.

Looking Ahead:
I saw some very cool looking collaborations happening on your presentations, so I can't wait to see them. Then we have some literature rich in archetypes just waiting for us to explore.
