Block 4 World Literature Poetry

When the sorrow approaches you,

When the loneliness approaches you,

I, who would be by you,

Would swallow your pain

While I swallow the pain,

Let’s support each other

Called love . . . as behavior and soul

We close our eyes, and wake up from our dream.

Discovering Dreams

Maddie displays great symbolism in her artwork. She portrays hard work through her grandfather. He was able to play professional basketball due to his work ethic and dedication. If you work hard and give your best effort towards your passion, you will inevitably reach your highest goals and wildest dreams. –Matt MendezMaddie Selvy Symbol

World Literature Studies Symbols.

“Cars” by Jamie Lin



Students recently read an excerpt from the graphic novel, Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood, by Iranian author Marjane Satrapi.  We studied the use of the symbol as a literary element.  Students from the 4th Block World Literature class created their own graphic novel page to show a scene from their life.  Jamie Lin from Taiwan used “cars” as his symbol.  Can you guess what his “cars” symbolize?

Walter Mitty visits Heritage Academy

Mrs. Zmarzly’s middle school Language Arts class read the short story, “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” by James Thurber (1939). They then rewrote the short story as a play. Each student submitted scenes from the play, contributed props  and scenery, and acted out the play for Mr. Powell’s and Ms. Bradley’s high school  English classes. Each student then wrote both concrete poetry and diamante poetry to describe the life of our poor hero, Walter Mitty.
