We read a series of poem and essays from the textbook that discusses familial love. The first was The Woman and Flower on pg 442. The second poem, My Father’s Song on pg 272. Finally we began discussing barriers to family life, particularly with regards to the television. We read, Primal Screen on pg 640.
Students will research 2 or more arguments from reliable sources either for or against television as a barrier to family life. Students will print out and annotate the articles OR take notes on the articles and bring those to class. We will be having a graded discussion on Monday on whether screen time is a barrier to family life.
