This was the first full week of school in the past two weeks and originally I thought I was going to die, but in all reality it wasn’t that bad. It actually kinda sucked not having the full weeks to get our presentations and essays together, but we made it work. I know that for the two weeks where we were going to school only every few days I did find it a little difficult to focus when we were in class and while we did get work done, I noticed that my group changed what we had done during that time period. Once we got back to going to school on a daily schedule we did get a lot of work done, and we did meet a couple times out of class just so we could polish our essay and presentation.
Doing the presentations it was really interesting, because everyone’s presentations we so different. There were a couple of groups that had chosen the same critical theory to focus in on while watching either King Lear or Macbeth but everyone’s presentations were super different. Everyone had different takes on their theories, and how they decided to discuss it with the class. I think the differences came from each group’s beliefs and how their discussions with Dr. McDermott helped to shape their presentations and guide their presentation.
While only actually having school around 10 days in the last three weeks I really liked everyone’s presentations and I found that they were really polished. I really liked getting to see into everyone’s thought process and while I did think I was going to die having to go to school a full week it didn’t end up being so bad.
