Core 1:

  1. Write-On: Why did you choose the words that you did?
  2. How are you going to inject these new found words into the different discourses of your lives?
  3. Along with choosing the right words and choosing the right situations for those words, I would like to propose the idea that we start choosing the right society for those situations. If we were going to think about society as a framework for all of our interactions, we would like that framework to be as perfect as possible. So, what we are going to start today is part of the Utopia/Dystopia unit. You are going to start thinking about perfection by revealing to one another what your idea of the perfect vacation, car, meal, or family is. The best part, however, is that you are going to reveal it to us in comic strip form. Using Bubblr.
