Humanities for Wisdom
You did great during the block scheduling. The Election is going to be really interesting this Fall when you are freshman, do not forget your class brochure. This week was even more impacted than the last couple of weeks. The testing has been publicly announced as done. Remember to keep working in all your class and get sleep. We have one last notebook due on 5/27/16. Also if you missed our discussion on Cinco de Mayo as a Civil War Mexican-American celebration you should read this article. I hope to have the video working before school gets out that I wanted to show you on the May celebration. Next week we will finish the Reconstruction notes and move to Jim Crow, Gilded age, and Ghost Dance era of America.

Everyone of us is living history. We all have a story to tell and the ancestors that came before us that carved a way for us to become a new member of civilization. We also are learning that we are all related genetically and culturally in the family of humanity. All people’s past becomes part of all of us, and will always be completely intertwined with the entire world community.
From time to time we will have some ideas from words that give us wisdom about our world. Writers are some of the most insightful people that understand our modern and ancient world quite well. Feel free to read, think, comment on these ideas. It seems that some of the students would like to debate issues of government, economics, and history. This can be a forum for this idea. Also if you would like to do formal debates in class we need to prepare debate rule and procedures. This can be a start and then we can decide if we will proceed to bring the debates in class on topics we study. Please follow our classroom rules if you decided to write on the blog. Make sure that you ask questions, and be helpful, and mature in all your interactions. This can be a helpful way for you to share what you have learned and what you want to learn, or just share ideas. Also just submit an idea through an email, or web contact, and we can maybe add the idea. Send a picture with the suggestion for the classes. Thank you.
Photos above left to right: The Solon, by Raphael was a depiction of the place where ideas were discussed and debated. Greek democracy in the public sphere. Here is the philosopher Seneca talking to Nero-Claudius Cesar Drusus Germanicus [Roman Emperor 54-68 BCE]- about society,law, politics, ethics and morality. Anthem for the doomed!
Students can also decide to add a topic that can be approved and monitored by Mr.C. Please be responsible and follow the social contract. You can share ideas and questions on your now topics about our class. Friends can help each other study with their devices. Please only students, but fell free to share the forum communications with your family. This can be a source for all students.
