Assignment from S. Frye, Due 1/13


Think about these questions deeply – talk to your parents and friends about them before you answer or do some research if you need to.  E-mail your answers back to me by Friday the 13th. Answering these questions is a required task for 2nd semester.
1. What are you going to learn?
2. How are you going to learn it?
3. How are you going to show me you are learning?
I know this is open-ended and will be hard for some of you, but go for it anyway.  I am not looking for answers like “I’m going to learn what you teach me.”
I’m looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!

Those of you looking for inspiration for your art, poetry, fiction, or lyrics. Those of you interested in the desperation of small town America. Those of you trying to understand the currents of American life that have led us to our current state of politics and economics. Those of you intrigued by the macabre and grotesque.
