discussion 7: argument about humanities

After looking through all of the materials in the Week 7 Learning Resources pick two of the resources and for each one, do the following:

  1. Identify the main argument about the Humanities and/or the human condition in the resource and state why you think this is the main point. Please try to do this is 1-2 sentences. Also, please note that some of the resources, like the “Where the Hell is Matt” videos, may have an implicit argument or point that is trying to be made.
  2. List one argument or artistic/creative method used that supports the main point the resource is trying to make about the Humanities and/or the human condition.

Sample Post

  1. Main argument 1: In X resource, the main argument is…… because X……
    • supportive method/argument
  2. Main Argument 2: In X resource, the main argument is…… because X……
    • supportive method/argument

4. DISCUSS FUNDING FOR THE ARTS

Although most people appreciate the arts as part of their everyday lives (perhaps, especially, music and film), the arts often are first to go when public school funding is tight. Use the educational resources for this week as a starting place to explore the pros and cons of public funding for the arts and funding for art and music in public schools.
