Warm-Up:

Let's watch a segment of this video on Mindset and Meaningful Work: What do we think about it?

And one more on Neuroplasticity. How do these ideas work together?

In-Class:

I'm going to send around the sign-up sheet for the Homework/Mini-Projects you looked through on Monday.

Now let's think of a song or two that (pretty much) everyone likes. Let's go through them together and BRAINSTORM the kinds of topics we could explore relating to these artists.

Homework:

You have decisions to make, so start exploring, thinking and reading online about artists that interest you. ONE WEEK from today, I would like you to have the artist, the song, and the [fairly well-developed] topic about them more or less decided, formulated in your mind and ready to discuss.
