“And Life Goes On”
By Terrence Cain
I wish I had a lot to share with you this week but unfortunately I don't. It seems that Wednesday was “abandon your students day” yet again. I'm sure they had good reasons, but would it have hurt them to have e-mailed or called all their students to let us know so that we don't have to make an unnecessary drive to class? Hopefully next week's classes will be open all four days. Okay enough complaining. I did at least have two of my professors show up both times this week.
In English II we talked about Kate Chopin's short story that I shared with you last week. We basically dissected the story and talked about it in great detail, which I won't go into because there was just simply too much to remember. I will tell you that we were broken up into groups and had to give our perspectives of certain characters, meanings of metaphors in stories, and comparing the story to the author's real life situations. For next week we have to read “A Rose For Emily” by William Faulkner. I'll post a link for Faulkner's story at the bottom for those of you who would like to read it.
In U.S. Government II we delved deeper into how Martin Luther and Isaac Newton were indirectly influential on the U.S. Constitution and the forefathers thereof. It was most definitely interesting to hear about it from Prof. Hamby. Well that's all I have to say this week. Until next time, this is Howard College's blogging machine, over and out!
