Once the warm-ups have been completed, students in 1st period will go on to, as a class, decipher texts from Confucius' Analects and Lao Tzu's Tao te Ching. They will then be asked to choose 1 selection from each, interpret its meaning, and explain what it says about the Chinese society. After they have finished, they will select a 3rd from either text and re-write it in modern day language. Finally, they will watch a series of videos in Google Classroom that further explain the philosophies and create posts discussing what was talked about in the videos.
Students in 3rd and 4th periods will complete the Battle of the Philosophers activity from the day before.
