How about some online extra credit over the weekend? I have two different
assignments for two different types of people! Choose your destiney!
Extra Credit for the "I've gotta go somewhere and
do something" person: Go to the Mall!
This weekend, Bowman has a gallery showing over at the Mall. It's all original Bowman art and some of our poets are also some of the artists displayed over at the Mall right now.
The exhibit is inside the mall, but right over by where "Shave It" and that really expensive candy store is.
It's cool that we're getting awesome recognition for our talent (Bowman's got a LOT of talent.) So why not celebrate it with a poem about one of the paintings or drawings. It worked for Edwin Markham when he wrote about a Man with a Gardening Tool. It could work for you!
Pick ONE painting and write about how it makes you feel and any questions you may have for the artist. Be sure to include the title of the artwork as the title of the poem so we know which one you're talking about!
Extra Credit for the "I'd rather stay home and kinda relax" person:

I'm attaching a quote here that's also a HINT about what we'll be learning about next week.
Take a look at the quote and respond to it in the comments below. Just reply to this email and it'll post below. Posting is participation and will count for extra credit.
How simple is that? You could even do that from you're phone! NICE!
Here's the quote. Tell me what you think he's talking about!
