Home Learning Assignment

Periods 1,3 and 6:

Create a "bumper sticker" that reflects on an event, tragedy, idea or person from the 1960's. For example, you could create one for a presidential candidate of the era. What about your feelings on the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights Movement, space travel, the Cuban Missile Crisis, Woodstock, and much, much more? You slogan (or saying) must be one of our literary tools. In addition, you must use a minimum of three colors, a symbol or graphic, and it must be unique (not something you find on the Internet).

For example, mine would be: No more danger, no more destruction, no more death. (I used parallelism and alliteration while I reflected on my feeling of the Vietnam War). I will bring a sample to class!

Here are some sites of some 1960's events:

Hello Mrs. Rodriguez :) hope all is well. I have a question about the vocabulary tone words homework. I printed out the list and I see that there are words for each emotion. Do we have to do the assignment on all of the words from all of the emotions? Or am I confusing the tone words with another list..

No, just the list of 10 I provided on the right. Many you already know, so we picked the ones of which the students were unsure.

I finally listened to the playlist of the 60's. I love that song by Elvis Presley xD. When are the vocabulary words due? I hadn't even noticed it there. I had copied the whole list since the day you posted them but hadn't noticed the homework.
