  • Tuesday, March 6 Homework (all classes)


    -Answer the following questions about the "King of Hearts" reading.  Be sure to answer in complete sentences that restate the question. 

    1. Write a paragraph explaining all the ways that Aragorn has been symbolical of Christ. 

    2. The reflection states that "In our heart of hearts, each of us longs to serve the true king."  This is evident throughout the many historical examples given in the passage of people's undying loyalty to monarchs who have passed away. Write about at least 2 modern examples of people serving a "king" (may not be a literal king), desperate to fulfill their natural tendency of loyalty to something better than themselves.



    -Read pages 493-395 (stop before "The Congo Basin")

    -Answer the question: What are the good elements of African village life?


    World Literature

    -Complete the assignment reflection over your Julius Caesar argument essay. Make sure the "Write" section is a paragraph, and you consider multiple ways in which you could improve.  Consider things not related to grades, such as effort, trying your best, and time management, since everyone good a good grade. 

    -Find a piece of written "propaganda" and determine what arguments (logos, pathos, ethos) and techniques are being used.  

    **Pretty much, this means your simply looking for a written piece that expresses opinion, and is trying to persuade the audience to think or feel a certain way.  You could look on almost any newpaper website and look at their opinion  or editorial page. 

    **For more ideas, check out the chart at this website: 

    -On this chart, sources that tend to lean "right" (or conservative) are towards the right, left (liberal) is to the left, but more importantly, fair, factual reporting is towards the top, and things that are biased or propaganda are towards the bottom.  (At least that is the claim.  I have heard plenty of people say there are some inaccuracies, and that's very possible.) For this assignment of determining arguments of opinion pieces, sources towards the very bottom, and to either the far left or the far right would probably be the easiest to find specific arguments and techniques.
