Today’s class created posters of quotes and discussed “The Social Me,” by William James. No additional work yet assigned. Please join the blog if you have not done so. There are still 24 open invitations. When I make an assignment to post on the blog, some of you will have problems if you do not get them resolved now.

On Friday/Monday, we read “The Social Me.” You are to finish up your three interpretive questions per person by next class. You have turned in your “culture” single drafts.


Please become a member of the blog if you have not done so already. I encourage you to put Dropbox on your smart phones and home computers.

First day! Wednesday/Thursday

Create a response to the following:
6. What is most important to you about your own culture? How do you keep it going, and how will you pass down this important element of culture to your own children?

Also, find from any source an inspirational, funny, or powerful quote and bring it with you. Be sure to get it exactly right and remember to note WHO said it. We will make wall posters Friday/Monday with your results.

My favorite, so you can't have it:
"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." – Teddy Roosevelt

Find your greatness and those who can help you reach it!
