Exploring World Literature and Culture:
For this first semester project you will become the expert on your selected country.
1) Each week you will write a response paper (see attached guidelines) for an event occurring in your selected country. This paper is due every Thursday or Friday depending upon the rotation of your class period. If an event is not occurring specifically in your chosen country then you will find a current events article which focuses on the region in which your country is located. For example, if you choose to cover the country of Madagascar, you may need to base your weekly responses on the region of Africa. This is weighed as a major grade.
2) During the week of September 15 you will discuss with the class the aspects of your selected country that you find fascinating, exciting or disturbing. You must submit to me a survey of your information. Please see Survey Sheet. This is a quiz grade.
3) During the week of October 8 you will be prepared to discuss with the class the oral traditions, folk tales, songs (instrumental and/or lyrical), and prayers of your selected country. For this portion of the assignment you will need to have printed copies of the materials you intend to discuss (minimum of 3). You will also complete a literature reflection for each of the works. See attached literature reflection sheet. This is weighted as a major grade.
