Nothing Gold Can Stay Nature's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf's a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay. – Robert Frost
Sunrise, Sunset Project • As Ponyboy observed early on, a sunset is something both the Greasers and the Socs can share. • However, everyone has their own “feeling” and focal-point even with the same sunset. • Both Johnny and Pony saw the sunrise from the church, yet Johnny focused on the mist while Pony focused on the clouds and horizon.
Sunrise, Sunset Project • Your task is to share YOUR sunrise or sunset. • You can draw it, paint it, photo it, etc. • You can write a descriptive essay (250 words), a poem (15-21 lines), or video monologue (5 minutes) • Be as creative as possible (points for neatness, etc. • Personalize your view – you are the only one to see it like that. WAY TO BE UNIQUE!!
Sunrise, Sunset Project • You will have two weeks to: • Observe, locate, and find a scene that “speaks” to you • Capture it in visual representation • Write/Speak about it (draft-to-final) • Present it
Sunrise, Sunset Project • What’s this worth? Far more than the points will ever tell. • Artistic Effort: 50 • Written Effort: 50 • Due 3/17-19/10
