    Bellwork: What the Future Holds.

    •As a society, we are fascinated with the future. Many storytellers have shared their vision of the future (Fahrenheit 451, 1984, 2001: A Space Odyssey, WALL-E.) Now I want you to share your vision of the future. Jump 100 years into the future and describe what our world will be like for your grandchildren/ great-grandchildren.

    •We are going to be working on this over several days so you do not have to finish today. Start today by focusing on what you would see if you walked outside in a major metropolitan city. What advances would you see? What would be the same? Have we conquered many of the challenges we face today, or did they conquer us?

  • Monday, October 2

    Bellwork:

    •Read the following description of the monster in MY closet and draw him from my description.

    •I opened the door and there he was, the monster in MY closet. He stared at me with two red eyes the size of plump cherry tomatoes with beady, black pupils. His round, basketball like head was dominated by an orange, potato like nose and a large mouth that took up the lower half of his head. He was -grinning wickedly now, showing his razor sharp teeth, and even though he was smiling, his furrowed brow told me it was not friendly. His head was covered in thick purple fur and seemed to teeter on a long, too thin neck that was at least as long as his head was tall. His round, fur covered body was twice as big as his head and rested on oversized, hairless, green feet that jutted out at opposite angles from his body. His hands dangled from long, skinny arms and his knuckles dragged the floor, showing long, cruel talons for fingernails.
