march 14

JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "Take Five" by Dave Brubeck; "Bird Feathers" by Charlie Parker]

I have lots of questions this morning, and I can't decide which I like asking the best.  So, it's up to you to decide which one(s) you like answering the best:

  • What is Jazz?  Why is it considered uniquely American?  (Feel free to look online for this one.)
  • Several Charlie Parker songs have "Bird" in the title.  As you listen to his music, explain why you think the image of a bird fits.
  • In the beginning of Fahrenheit 451, the burning books are portrayed as birds.  Why do you think this imagery fits?  
1. Journal/discussion
2. Table reading with questions
3. Writers' conferences continued
