Final Exam Explanation

Dear Humanities Kids,


If you were enrolled in a Humanities course 400 years in the future, what would your curriculum entail regarding the 20th-21st centuries... (our time period....and a few years in the past). In essence, what would you study and why from our current time period.?How do the Humanities exhibit themselves in our current culture and why are they worth studying? So, what pieces of literature from the 21st century would you study and why? What architectural forms from our time would we study and why? What religious views would we study? What pieces of artwork would we study? WHY? WHY? WHY?
Prior to the exam. you will randomly pull three subjects for discussion. For example, you might pull "Art, Literature and Architecture." These will be the subjects for your body paragraphs. You are welcome to use any notes, and I suggest that you do, to assist  with answering the above question.  Think about why we have studied the time periods that we have, and their corresponding art, architecture, culture, and literature. Consider what will SIGNIFICANTLY EFFECT future generation from our time period.
I look forward to reading your responses, my young friends.

Romanesque and Gothic Time Periods

Dear Humanities Kids,

1. You must return your textbooks to the library as soon as possible.
2. CER #2 is due on Thurday, May 16th!
3. Journal entries are due on May 16th!
4. Plan on a "Quest" covering Byzantium, Romanesque, Gothic time period as well as Islam on Tuesday!

1. Okay, guys, for some reason the quiz is loading in this post. However, I have it on the post for May 2012. So go to the previous post on the right side of the home page and find the second post for May. You will see images from the Gothic time period. I will continue to post it for you here, but at least you have an alternative for the practice quiz.

Enjoy your weekend, and remember to tell your mother's how much you love, value and venerate them.
