As promised, I'm putting together my list of movies and documentaries to accompany our discussions. For now, I'll be posting a few of them here =)
This short video by Weird History features the grandson of a photographer imprisoned at Manzanar.
I'm writing you from the comfort of my living room, where I'm enjoying hot chocolate (*whipped cream, of course* and my famous purple fuzzy slippers. There are some upsides to the 2020 apocalypse =)
In the following three weeks, I will be posting everything you need to know: updates, homework, and lectures right here. It's all in blog format, so you can respond straight to the posts. For now, just keep up with the syllabus. After discussing with several ILA students (and parents), I've decided to do these weeks as a video series, rather than a live discussion, as it will help keep your schedule more flexible. That means YOU CAN REST EASY ON WEDNESDAY! YAY! Homework responses will still be due, but you will have till midnight to send them in to my email.
Stay kind, everybody!
