Hey, hope your reading is going well. So far my findings of setting descriptions consist heavily of the ideology of Florence more than the terrain and climate. I have found lots of things pertaining to the high esteem artists held back then, government, politics, and disease.
Hey sorry for the later reply, the reading is going good! At the beginning like before the book starts it says Umbria Italy so that seems to be were it is most set
My book mostly takes place in Florence. It portrays the city as a place that values words more than deeds.
Would setting include characters clothing descriptions? I feel like It would give a good look into the time period
Yeah. Any thing that gives you an idea of where the story takes place is good.
Okay thank you that will be good I will go back through and see what else I can find
Hey. Do you have 10 facts from your book you want to research. If not think about it. You should record your findings (remember to document your sources on a work cited page)
Does your book include any word of an attack on an Umbrian city? My book mentions a mercenary who plundered Umbria. This could be a potential actual truth about the setting.
Not that I have read that I can remember I will definitely go back and look into more detail
Does your book mention any details about having hawks, and horses, in relationing to our class reading of Things Fall Apart, my book has made it seem like having a hawk bird is a mans thing
I have not found anything of the sort. I'll keep it in mind when reading my second book.
As well as clothing it has had a very big difference between the rich and poors ability to dress, the rich have the very basic medieval threatical dressing big bold colors and almost prince view, while the poor didn't quite look like that? Wondering if that is actually how it wears or just a common misbelief
Does your book describe gender roles in italy? My book gave the view of Italian authors on how men and women should be as citizens.
Yes it does, have a little on the gender roll
How did you want me to cut the board
For the research thing is it individual doing it so each of us have one?
Yes, we each need to investigate 10 questions
Going to finish up the board tonigh
Got board cut and spray painted and it looks really good, also getting the last few things typed up
Okay thank you I will make sure it gets done, the board looks really good
I had to go through and print it all bigger and I need to figure out what we need to do with part of the top
I won't be at school tomorrow. Is there anything you need me to do?
