Tuesday September 5

We began class by listening to two spirituals:  Swing Low, Sweet Chariot and Go Down Moses.  After reading a brief historical selection about the origins of spirituals, we had a discussion on the meaning of Opression and how music and literature can help people speak their minds and motivate change.  Randy was quick to jump on the term ALLUSION. 

Homework:  Complete the comprehension questions for The Red Badge of Courage.
