This week we will try to finish up our discussion on Freire and move into the stylistic points of APA writing as well as prepare ourselves for the midterm assignment that is due late next week. The assignment can be found below.

Here you will find the primary prezi of the week detailing the boring process of APA style and format that is a NECESSITY for college level courses regardless of the major.


Here you will find a prezi detailing and summarizing the contents of Sir Ken Robinson’s Ted Talks which apply to a wide variety of problems facing the world today. You may also wish to check out the Vice News youtube channel if you are having a hard time deciding on an important problem to tackle in your writing



If time permits, we may revisit these prezis as well

Key Terms and Vocabulary in Freire 


A deep overview of the chapter “Banking concept of education”https://prezi.com/_doyktiwovg6/paulo-freire/ 


We will continue our study of Carl Jung and his alternative approach to psychotherapy. There is a lot of information contained within the lectures below and it will be impossible for us to get to them all, so understand that there may be a lot of information we are unable to cover this week. Please begin preparing to learn about Jung by reading the blue handout I gave everyone about him and his theory. It is short and simple. Read it, look up new terms, and make notes in your notebooks.I have also given you a comic that outlines the essential points of Carl Jung’s life, thoughts and work. All of the Prezi’s below are helpful in understanding Jung, but we will mainly focus on the first one. If you find it interesting, then look at the other ones on your own time 😉

1. Below you will find an excellent prezi on the man and his thought.


2. We will also use this prezi to illustrate differences between Freud and Jung.


3. And we will use this one only for it’s beautiful quote


Here is a book that might be useful to you if you find Jung interesting and want to know more.

This week we were supposed to be examining Richard Rorty’s Philosophy Without Mirrors, but I have decided that the essay is too difficult to approach with our current level of knowledge so we will conclude our investigation of knowledge with a presentation on metaphor, and the analysis of a few poems by my favorite alcoholic, chain-smoking, woman-chasing, poet, Charles Bukowski.

Here is the prezi on metaphor. It is primarily based on a book called “The Educated Imagination” by Northrup Frye. 


First, we will look at the poem Laughing Heart https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQNmu1Q9NzA

Charles Bukowski All the Way

Here is an animation of one of the poems we will be analyizing, Bluebirdhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsc3ItAKSLc

Here is the text of the poem https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyMS4qJ8NXU

What follows is a poem that is equally beautiful but perhaps a bit more difficult to understand written by American Transcendentalist, Walt Whitman.
