Task

Page history last edited by Barbara A. Jansen 10 years, 8 months ago

What will you write in your journal? Where are you from in India? What town or city, what region in India? What do you do all day for each of 7 days? How is Monday different from Wednesday? On the 5th day of your week the festival of Diwali begins, describe how you plan to celebrate the "festival of lights." What is your family like, your hobbies, what are the heartaches and dreams of your life? What is the best time of day? How do you interact with members from other castes? How will this look in a journal entry? Be creative. Weave the facts you find in the research into the journal entries so that you sound authentic.

 

In groups during class you will brainstorm a list of questions you will need to research, as well as a list of ideas to include in your journal. In whole group discussion, you will add to your list.

 

The more you read about Hinduism and your caste, the more rich and detailed your journal entries.
