Description

VISUAL ESSAY (PLATO'S THEAETETUS)

The purpose of this product is to provide the material to those interested in a more difficult reading but one that is still manageable.  The results for my VISUAL ESSAYS on the Platonic dialogues have been so successful that I wanted to share the material and provide enough information that those not familiar with the dialogue could still use it with success.

I NOW CALL THESE VISUAL ESSAYS AS THE ASSIGNMENT HAS GROWN AND TAKEN ON A NEW AND EXCITING LIFE OF ITS OWN!!!

In all of my first year undergraduate classes I employ Visual Notetaking as a way to engage my students in the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy. I always find this assignment rewarding for my students - a helpful way to study, a different type of assignment, a way to engage visual learners, and I am always surprised by their work.

MANY PEOPLE HAVE PURCHASED MY VNT PRODUCT, SO I DID NOT INCLUDE THE VNT (rubric) INFORMATION HERE.  THIS IS A SUPPLEMENT TO THE ORIGINAL PRODUCT.

Included in this product are the following:

⚫ An excerpt from Plato’s Theaetetus.  The Theaetetus is one of the Platonic dialogues that I do my VNT assignment on - I also lecture on Plato’s Republic, Apology, Nietzsche’s Thus Spake Zarathustra, and excerpts from Thucydides.  I will be creating VNT text specific lectures in the coming months. This is the first in this series.


⚫The Theaetetus is an excellent text to study alongside The Velveteen Rabbit, The Little Prince, 1984, Catch 22, and other novels that question the existence of truth.

The Theaetetus is particularly important today in a world of fake news, alternative facts, and gaslighting.  The question at the center of the dialogue regards the question of knowledge and does it exist.  

⚫There are 17 pages of the dialogue included here.  The dialogue may be found online and is in the public domain.  I have included these pages for the sake of convenience and only included the pages that I cover during my VNT lecture.  These are just the pages without notes. I have a HOTS unit on Plato’s Theaetetus that provides notes on this section of the text.  You will find it here:

⚫4 samples of VNT during a Socratic Seminar:  

I do a VNT trial run during my Socratic Seminar.  While in the outer circle students engage in VNT.

⚫6 Student examples VNT:

I use student examples from previous semesters to help my class understand my expectations.

⚫An introduction to The Theaetetus. THIS IS ONE 11X17 PAGE - EQUIVALENT TO TWO PAGES OF TEACHER NOTES ON THE THEAETETUS.

⚫An explanation of how I use VNT in my classroom.

Make strategic use of digital media (e.g., textual, graphical, audio, visual, and interactive elements) in presentations to enhance understanding of findings, reasoning, and evidence and to add interest.
Come to discussions prepared, having read and researched material under study; explicitly draw on that preparation by referring to evidence from texts and other research on the topic or issue to stimulate a thoughtful, well-reasoned exchange of ideas.
Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative, connotative, and technical meanings; analyze the cumulative impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone (e.g., how the language of a court opinion differs from that of a newspaper).
Analyze how an author draws on and transforms source material in a specific work (e.g., how Shakespeare treats a theme or topic from Ovid or the Bible or how a later author draws on a play by Shakespeare).
Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in the text, including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the cumulative impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone (e.g., how the language evokes a sense of time and place; how it sets a formal or informal tone).
