Welcome Back!!

It has been pretty crazy coming back after such a wonderful spring break, but I was very glad to be seeing all of you again! I just want to remind you that I will be checking your Spring Break presentations. They are graded on being 3-5 slides long, containing images and not being too wordy, and on some effort and creativity. Remember, this short quarter means every assignment counts — a LOT! I also look forward to seeing the analysis you are able to do with the practice poems. We will shortly be beginning work with our final poems. These poems will be, on average, 150 lines in length. Get ready!!!

How do selection of details and bias impact the way we see a topic? How does propaganda operate? What is the message and how has it been achieved?
