All read conclusion
1) Summarize the scientific findings
2) Explain the methodology
3) Come up with two questions that relate what you read back to an idea from class about perception

To help with #3, use some of our connections from class below:

Attitudes Towards Muslim Women in the West
How perceptions can change -> (3D art)
Perspectives shape perception ->(Historian as Participant)
Information distortion -> (Scents and Sensibility)
Need multiple perspectives for a cohesive account -> (Historian as Participant)

Alice in Wonderland
Environment effects perception -> (Extra Sensory Perception)
Environment effects perception -> (3D art)

Historian as Participant
Perspective shapes perception -> (Attitudes 2 Muslim Women in West)
Multiple perspectives needed to create a cohesive version -> (Attitudes 2 Muslim Women in West)

3D Art
Environment effects perception -> (Alice in Wonderland)
Initial perceptions can change -> (Attitudes 2 Muslim woemn in west)
Literal version of perception can shape perspective -> (Historian as Participant)
Brain can perceive something incorrectly -> (Scents and Sensibility)

Scents and Sensibility
Brain’s perception of senses -> (Extra Sensory Perception)
We can perceive something incorrectly -> (3D art)
Information distortion -> (Attitudes 2 Muslim Women in West)

Extra Sensory Perception
Brain’s perception of senses -> (Scents and Sensibility)
Environment effects perception -> (Alice in Wonderland)

Hi Documentary Film advisory!
Watch a few of the short documentaries below. Afterwards, we’ll talk about what makes a good short movie about a real life subject.

AP Seminar – Monday Feb. 12

Hi everyone,

I’m going to have to miss class today for a field trip, but here’s what you need to have done for class tomorrow:

  • Read and annotate “Through the Looking Glass” from your Stimulus Packet. Make sure you annotate with the lenses and ideas we identified in class on Friday using the 3D art.
  • Read and annotate “Extra Sensory Perception” the same way.
  • Read and annotate “Attitudes Toward Muslim Women in the West” the same way.

All three of these can be found in the stimulus packet. Make sure you’re using those lenses and the vocabulary we used on Friday to help you in your annotations. I’ll check your work tomorrow.
