In English class with Mr. Meyer recently, the assignment was to create something that shows the characteristics of the Romantic movement. Sophie Lyons connected items in her contemporary life that related to this 200 year old movement. She drew and colored them all and explained how they represent the traits of Romanticism. Alexis Caltrider put hers on a block of wood. She nailed a shape of a heart with string attaching the nails as a visual of the emotion that “connects” the themes of the movement. She also used pages as the “leaves” for her tree, showing that nature is a teacher. Very impressive!
