For final presentations, I'd like you to fulfill the role of teacher. The is a World Literature class, and we have learned that this means within the literature, no matter the genre, histories, philosophies, fights, emotions, and individual stories are shared. We have gone back to the time of enlightenment, to the time of reasoning and sharing thoughts and concerns that shocked societies, but pushed progress and freedom of thought. We have been witness to history through language. The use of words have introduced us to real people, facing extraordinary circumstances and transformative experiences. This we have learned much from, and can apply much of the same issues people faced long ago to today. I would like you to share with the class something you feel important to learn, just as I did when selecting material to explore. There are so many significant issues happening around the world that impact all humans, no matter how far apart we may be from one another. It is communicating these issues that creates the connection that we are all part of the same world. The thoughts and actions of others, influence and reach across oceans. This is not always for the greater good, but out of our differences comes the thought of how to rebuild and find peace, even if faced with what seems impossible.
When selecting what you would like to teach the class, think of themes found in all walks of life, issues of humanity that circulate and resurface again and again.
We discussed the kidnapping of the 117 girls in Nigeria; all of you were intrigued. Many of the philosophies were met this semester address oppression, the way humans have used power to control. I could have applied this to offer awareness to an issue that plagues and destroys hope.
I have mentioned this as a current event, but you can choose from history, and it does not have to be something that has made headlines. I do want a literature component that you can apply, but it does not have to be from our texts; perhaps you have been introduced to other stories, poems, plays, that highlight significant conditions faced in the human experience. No matter the event or issue, do offer in your lesson, language that helps exemplify the significance. Tell us that to help understand the significance of the issue, words from somewhere can help.
How you introduce your concern is up to you; PowerPoint is fine, lecturing is fine, but if you lecture, provide something to the class, a handout, a video, a TED talk, something to help students comprehend and make connection to. It might also be helpful to make copies of the literature component, if this is a larger part of your lesson. Each studnet will have 7 minutes.
Here is the breakdown:
1. The literature component and an outline of the lesson plan, what you explain first, methods to be used, etc.
2. A summary of your lesson, and why you feel it is important to share. This is what I will return to you with your grade. (We can begin presentations this day, if anyone is ready)
