It had been an exciting first week for me. I am getting to know my students and getting to know Harmony. The first week of Shakespeare’s World we tackled Sonnet 138 and we found out what we already know about Shakespeare. Now we are diving into the first scene of Romeo and Juliet, comparing our own reading of the text to the Zeffirelli and Luhrmann films. We started off Digital Media by sharing some of our favorite songs, poems stories and YouTube videos. Then we read a variety of fables and myths and compared them to some modern short stories. This week, we will spend some time with poetry and begin discussing web design. The ESL class is starting the year by getting to know each other. We are speaking, reading and writing English every day and learning new vocabulary.
