For this week we been heavily focusing on watching Macbeth. Within in Macbeth we have been looking at analytical/psychological critical theory. There are a few scenes we looked recognized within our groups as being big and important. We recognize that when he seeing the daggers in the thin air before killing the king was clearly his psychology level starting to change. We looked at the scene where he was have a meal with all his lords and he started to see things that where not there. He say the ghost of people he order to have died. He starts to go into a fit clearly showing he he not very psychology stable. The blood he been spilling is messing with psychology and hurting him.
This week we started working on critical theory. Our group has chosen to go into depth of psychological/analytical critical theory. We have done some studying into the topic and learned that that there are multiple branches of this theory. We also found out the theory was develop by a single guy name Carl Jung. We looked at the superstitions of plans and dramas. We learned that some people believe in a lot of different superstitions and some believe that performing a play help connecting with the other side with spirits and rituals these plays and dramas are like rituals.
This week marks the start of a new trimester and a chance to work hard to get the grade I want this trimester. We started with a AP Literature test multiple choice test. It gave us experience with what it will be like on the AP Test at the end of the year. We were shown the scoring system on the AP Test. We need either strong scoring on either the essays or the multiple choice question to do well on the AP Test. We should shot for a minimum scoring of around 5 on each essay in order to gives us breathing room on the multiple choice test part of it. We start picking subject for a project we will be working on for a presentation. We need 2 books which I have "The Loser" and "The Tin Drum" and my subject is how music shapes us and it role it society.
