Final Grades and Final Exam

I plan to have ALL Final Grades, minus the Final Exam and a breakdown of what each item is “weighted” up for you to look at by Thursday, Dec. 5.

Our Final Exam, for which you received the reading on Monday, Dec. 2 and a digital copy is available below, will take place on Thursday, Dec. 5 between 1:00 – 3:00 PM in our normal classroom.

Your job before hand is to read and annotate and take notes (you can bring 1-page of notes with your reading) and then bring it to the final exam.

  1. If you DO have a laptop or tablet, please bring it as you will be allowed to submit it digitally after typing it.

  2. If you DO NOT have a laptop or tablet or would like to write it by hand, please purchase (can be bought at the bookstore) and bring a Blue Book to the final.

Summary Reading 7

Excerpt from March, Book I

For your reading and response this week I am having you look at an excerpt from March: Book 1 by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell, a story originally published in 2013 but is set in 1959-60 during the early stages of the Civil Rights movement and lunch counter sit-ins.

You will read March: Book 1 and write (neatly) or type a 2-3 paragraph response. Your response should attempt to answer the questions: 

  • For this entire reading and response I want you to reflect upon and answer the questions: what did this kind of approach to protesting really achieve, both long term and short term? Do you find yourself agreeing with their attitude and approach? Why? Feel free to highlight or examine more closely any particular elements or points in the story that you find powerful or connective.
