So, how are we all doing?

  • Questions, comments, concerns about the learning community?
  • Questions about any of the issues/topics we discussed last class meeting?
  • Take out a piece of paper and something to write with. :) I want to know what you think!

So, are there any set definitions of the concept of truth?

  • So, what's the Difference?: Primary vs. Secondary Sources
    • Authors of secondary sources use primary sources to interpret the past.
    • What do primary sources tell us about the past?
    • How are we certain that we can trust these sources?

Get into groups of five and no larger! You choose your group mates!

  • Each group will receive a handout with the following questions.

1.) Who is the intended audience?(The term "Audience" can best be defined as a reader, viewer, listener and consumer.)

2.) What is the artist's purpose? What are they trying to get their audience to think, feel, believe, say and/ or do?

3.) What is the artist's message? In what ways has it changed over time?

  • Let's take a look at something you may be familiar with. Your task as a group is to ANALYZE the image and to share with your classmates your interpretation. I am not looking for specific responses to these questions, I just want to know what you think!
