CompetencyFormulate, express, and support individual perspectives on diverse works and issues.
For this assessment task, you are asked to act as a critic for one of the various subjects under the umbrella of the subject Humanities. Through a series of critiques, you will be demonstrating your background knowledge on these subjects and the themes studied in the Humanities. In general, a critic evaluates a work or piece based on a common language of a subject. For example, certain terminology is used in the film industry for aesthetic, whereas other terminology is used in architecture. Aside from a common language of art, each subject usually includes a history of influence-how a work was influenced by other works and how a work influence aspects of today’s art and culture. Critics use this common body of history and aesthetic to offer critiques, or judgements on the validity of the importance of aesthetic (it’s representation of beauty).

Formulate, express, and support individual perspectives on diverse works and issues.
You will act as a critic for some of the main subjects covered in the humanities. You will conduct a series of short, evaluative critiques of film, philosophy, literature, music, and myth.

I find no peace, and all my war is done;I fear and hope, I burn and freeze likewiseI fly above the wind, yet cannot rise;And nought I have, yet all the world I seize on;That looseth, nor locketh, holdeth me in prison, And holds me not, yet can I ’scape no wise;Nor lets me live, nor die, at my devise,And yet of death it giveth none occasion.Without eyes I see, and without tongue I plain;I wish to perish, yet I ask for health;I love another, and yet I hate myself;I feed in sorrow, and laugh in all my pain;Lo, thus displeaseth me both death and life,And my delight is causer of my grief.
After great pain a formal feeling comes—The nerves sit ceremonious like tombs;The stiff Heart questions—was it He that bore?And yesterday—or centuries before?
The feet mechanical go roundA wooden wayOf ground or air or oughtRegardless grown,A quartz contentment like a stone.
This is the hour of leadRemembered if outlivedAs freezing persons recollectThe snow—First chill, then stupor, thenThe letting go
