A. Reminder there will be a quiz on the poetic devices, the biography of the poets, the main historical events of the Harlem Renaissance, and the meaning of the poems. You do not need to look outside the sources we used in class.
B. How do these poets express their identity in their poems? Remember, that will be the question for your “choice” poem. You cannot copy and paste your paragraph onto the test- you should remember your main points and be ready to write a chunky paragraph on the test.
C. After the Circle Talk, I ask that you reflect on the experience in OneNote in “journal entry” with the title “Circle Talk”. Due MONDAY. Choose ONE to discuss in a chunky, insightful paragraph:
- Choose ONE of the First Nations Principals of Learning and explain how this experience reflected this principle? Eg. how did this experience show you that learning is embedded in memory, history and story?
- How can one learn through aural and oral communication?
- How did this exercise build community in this room?
