Today: We continued the brainstorming that we began last week on the topic of imagination. Adding to what we “know” about the topic and brainstorming what we “wonder” about the topic.
We also took a look at a classic Spongebob Squarepants episode called “Idiot Box.” Yes, it may be juvenile, but let’s apply our advanced analytical prowess to it nonetheless! We will use it as the basis of a discussion tomorrow, examining both its themes relevant to imagination as well as certain formal qualities that help to convey its ideas including:
- Visual style
- Sound effects
- The title
Homework: Keep reading and making journal entries!
