III. Homework for Thursday, 15 September
Here is how to handle this assignment:

A. We start with the Index of White Watercolors/De Bry Engravings.
This web page provides links to each of the drawings.
http://www.virtualjamestown.org/images/white_debry_html/jamestown.html

Let me explain how to use this index. I am using the same numbers for each drawing as used in the index.

I have put in the URL for the description which I want you to read.

You will have to use the index to click on the drawing and engraving separately.

B. All of us will read the following:

Introduction to White Watercolors/De Bry Engravings
http://www.virtualjamestown.org/images/white_debry_html/introduction.html

C. All of us will work through the following:

#34. Village of Pomeiooc
http://www.virtualjamestown.org/images/white_debry_html/white.html#s34

#38. Indian Village of Secoton
http://www.virtualjamestown.org/images/white_debry_html/white.html#s38

#42. Indians dancing around a circle of posts
http://www.virtualjamestown.org/images/white_debry_html/white.html#s42

3) I've assigned specific students to the other ones as follows:

If you want to switch with someone, that's ok with me.

I will put the engraving on the projector and you give a quick highlight of it.

6. Class roster and your lovely pictures

Crucial for me to learn your names and to get to know you

A. Sawubona: I see you (South Africa greeting)

[Per Kimberly B. W. Denu, Ph.D., vice president/chief diversity officer at APU
Inclusive Excellence: Integrated and Intentional Diversity
http://www.apu.edu/articles/inclusive-excellence-integrated-and-intentional-diversity/]

"During my time in South Africa as a Fulbright scholar, I became familiar with the Zulu greeting sawubona. Although similar to 'hello,' the actual translation is, 'I see you!' I love this greeting because the meaning goes beyond seeing the physical person. It actually means I see your value and worth."
