Throughout the third quarter, Mrs. VanBuskirk’s Honors English 10 students are studying a variety of common allusions in order to better prepare them for AP Literature. Students were first assigned a common literary, biblical, mythological, or historical allusion. Then, through a research project, students explored the origin of the allusion and identified 3 different mediums (songs, art, literature, television shows, films, etc.) in which their allusion occurs. Students examined how the use of this allusion in the mediums affect the overall meaning of the medium within its context. Students then created an informative presentation on their allusion to share with their peers. These students are definitely Einsteins!
