Truth of Happiness Project
For this Project we studied happiness. We read Brave New World in class and then did lots of personal research about happiness. Our goal was to find out what the Truth of Happiness is. Then make a video explaining what we think it is. Below is me and Riley's video.
Socialization and Mask Project
For this project, we learned about Socialization. Socialization is the study of society and the effect it has on a person. We learned about the cycle created by Bobby Harrow. The cycle has 8 parts which are, The Beginning, First Socialization, Institutional and Cultural Socialization, Enforcements, Results, Actions, Directions for Change, and the Core. The core of the cycle is attached to all other parts of the cycle and it consists mostly of fear in people. This fear is people's fear of the cycle and that they are too small to beat it. This feeds the cycle and only makes it stronger. After learning this we designed and made a mask of our own face that somehow represented our relationship with the cycle. Then as a class, we built an exhibition that represented the cycle and our guests walked through the cycle in order to make them aware of the cycle as well as show them how it works.
