I do like this proposal for

I do like this proposal for our syllabus, but I do wonder if our class had kind of done the "what is reality?" question to death. At this point, I'm accepting the fact that reality is subjective and that it can't be defined - do we really need another six weeks of that?

That being said, the selection here is intriguing, especially because we have not yet dealt with science or religious writing. However, I'm not so keen on the Colin Ellard book. Through Sonlit, we have dealt with a spatial reality and the value of getting 'lost.' I don't think we need to explore that again. Perhaps we could substitute "Children of Crisis"by Robert Coles, as we have yet to explore the ''ethnographic'' version of reality.
