Universal Theme of Change

Change is an idea that we will visit repeatedly this year in English.  It is a concept that you will start to see in other classes and in real life.  I challenge you to start looking for examples of the following generalizations. They are universal because you will start to see them everywhere you look.

Generalizations About Change:

  • Change is inevitable.
  • Change can be positive or negative.
  • Change can be evolutionary or revolutionary.
  • Change generates additional change.
  • Change is necessary for growth.

* Based on the work of Sandra Kaplan

Assignment: Create an artistic representation of change.  Make sure your work speaks to at least one of the generalizations about change.

Look how easy it is to find examples!  Here are some YouTube videos with stars singing about change. What generalizations do you hear?
