Transcript: Royal Mile The Kirk of the Canongate, or Canongate Kirk, serves the Parish of Canongate in Edinburgh's Old Town, in Scotland. It is a congregation of the Church of Scotland. Architecturally, the Kirk has a Dutch-style end gable and a curious, small doric-columned portico over the entrance. The Canongate was a separate burgh before it was formally absorbed by Edinburgh in 1856. By the late 1970s, the lower part of the Royal Mile, including the Canongate, had become unfashionable and run down. Since then, circumstances have changed radically - notably with the construction of new flats in the vicinity as well as the new Scottish Parliament building. The church was founded in 1688 and completed in 1691. The master mason in charge was James Smith. A plaque on the front of the church bears witness to it having been built through a large bequest from a local merchant. Kirk of the Canongate Kirk of the Canongate During the annual Edinburgh Festival, the Kirk is extensively used as a venue for music, as is the Kirk's nearby hall - the "Harry Younger Hall" (which is known as "Venue 13" for the duration of the annual Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The Canongate Churchyard is the resting place of several Edinburgh notables including the economist Adam Smith, the philosopher and Smith's biographer Dugald Stewart, Agnes Maclehose (the "Clarinda" of Robert Burns), by tradition David Rizzio, the murdered private secretary of Mary, Queen of Scots, and the poet Robert Fergusson, whose statue in bronze by David Annand stands outside the kirk gate.Bishop James Ramsay is also buried here. St John's Street Breweries Once an overcrowded, poverty-stricken, industrial hub, the Canongate has now become a tourist trap and student accommodation haven. The Canongate area used to house three Brewery buildings, which have all now been converted into Student flats. Breweries Spence development Attempts at improving an overcrowded and poverty-stricken Canongate saw schemes from a number of notable architects in the 1930s and 1950s. Basil Spence's 1960s addition to the Canongate can still be clearly seen today. Spence Development Moray House Moray House (Old) Moray House was built around 1618 by Mary, Countess of Home. It was built at a time when there was greater political stability in Scotland and England and when the Canongate was becoming a desirable district for the town houses of the Scottish aristocracy. It was designed to provide an elegant mansion for members of her family. The house, two stories high, was built of light grey freestone. Contemporary documents record that her house was referred to as the 'great ludging' and has been described as 'the handsomest house in Edinburgh'. The north side has a gable, large windows with strapwork and a Balcony. The coats of arms (the lions of Home and Dudley impaled on a lozenge) are displayed on this side of the building. Her linked initials, M and H, may be seen above the centre window on the south gable. Development of Nursery School Following the demolition of the buildings housing the women's hostels in St John Street in 1929, plans were developed for a purpose built Nursery School on this site. The School was planned by Miss MacKenzie, Infant Mistress in the Moray House Demonstration School. She was supported by a Special Sub - Committee (December 1930). Research into the specialist area of Kindergarten architecture had been carried out by the College in Lubeck and elsewhere in Germany in the 1920s. The layout was also influenced by the work of Margaret and Rachel McMillan who opened a similar school in Peckham, London, in 1914. It was designed on Montessori principles. This child-centred approach required furniture, toilets, and even coat pegs to be designed specifically for small children. Adagio Hotel The Royal Mile has received a number of face-lifts in the modern era with what seems like conflicting agendas. A example of this is the Aparthotel on the Canongate that has kept it's original facade and completely redesigned the interior behind the road facing wall. Adagio Hotel

Transcript: Social Sciences The relationships of societies: A study of "personal experience, values, theories, hypotheses and logical models" (Repko, p.114). In attempting to solve this issue there would have to be many disciplines used. Economics would be one of the first disciplines that would be needed in order to break through the reasoning for charging so much more for students to attend even though they essentially get less. Political Science would also be very important in this issue because in order to research further one would have to look into any politics involved and the way they effect the university itself. Anthropology along with sociology is also a very key discipline to involve because by looking into a culture, interactions of students and communities of an area and its needs is dyer in placing the correct facilities needed for students at the satellite Universities. Academic Journals History of Disciplines Topics: The Main Focus Anthropology Economics Political Science Psychology Sociology Roosted in the Age of Enlightenment (post 1650) a revolution within natural philosophy Further fostered by the General Education Movement Concepts are based in Western Philosophy and positivist ideology Developed from the sciences (scientific process perspectives) Many Universities worldwide are charging the same tuition rate and most of the time more for off main campus students for less available amenities. This includes examples of lack of health facilities on the satellite schools, less offered class choices and sports options. This is causing reflected effects to the students and their financial status trying to finish school and stay close to home. Example Problem Methods: Research and Information Current Anthropology Quarterly Journal of Economics The American Economic Review American Journal of Political Science American Political Science Review American Journal of Sociology American Sociological Review American Psychologist American Journal of Psychology The Journal of Psychology Problems Addressed Embraces more than one epistemology Reflects the growing postmodernist criticism of positivism's empiricism Values neutrality knowledge is generated by "continual interplay of personal experiences, values, theories, hypotheses, and logical models" Research Process for Example Problem Valid Knowledge Societal problems Cultural Differences/Interactions Political, ethical, and value based struggles Human behavior Market Interactions Social reality and relationships “The social sciences use modernistic scientific techniques, such as mathematical models and statistical analysis of empirical data…The more descriptive social sciences, such as anthropology, may use a form of the method that involves gathering information by making visual observations or interviewing and use “thick description” to record this data” (Repko 133)

Transcript: Art Lyrics Comparison Assignment Students compare and contrast the lyrics of “The Internationale” to “The Beasts of England” as sung by the animals in chapter 1 of Animal Farm. Students discuss the generic features and functions of song, and apply them to these examples. Students find a song or poem which captures an essential aspect of class inequality or injustice. Students provide a brief written analysis demonstrating how the lyrical and musical choices of the artist contribute to this theme. Communist Manifesto – Group Assignment Students read the preamble to Marx and Engel’s Communist Manifesto, and consider how authors make choices to convey their purpose. In groups, students conceive of their own “parties” with “views on aims and tendencies,” which they discuss, create and share with the class. Propaganda Posters – Group Assignment Students will draw exemplary quotes from the text which can be defined as “propaganda”, and collaborate to create posters which bring them to life in the propaganda style. Students will explore the concept of propaganda, and trace its presence across time and place, ultimately recognizing its influence in their own lives. Argumentative Essay Students will write a brief (3 page) argumentative essay on Orwell’s use of allegory and personification in Animal Farm Students will develop outlines in class and participate in at least 2 in class peer-editing/writing workshops Essays will follow a generic structure of literary analysis, exhibit grammatical proficiency, and provide ample textual support for claims, with proper citations in MLA format Socratic Seminar (following Gallery Walk) Drawing from outside knowledge, personal opinion, and course content in both their social sciences and ELA classes, students will participate in a gallery walk in which they will post comments and questions on discussion boards in answer to various statements or prompts addressing class inequality Students will prepare questions and answers for formal seminar discussion, as well as quotes from Orwell’s text (or any other supplementary texts covered in this unit) which support their opinions Students will participate in a Socratic Seminar based on the theme of class inequality, drawing upon their preparation materials. Afterwards, students will write a brief reflection summing up their stance and the experience. English Language Arts

In what ways do the tenets of modern architecture relate to the forms used in modernist literature? How would you compare this time period's important scientific developments (particularly, quantum theory) to developments in modernist literature? Think of, for instance, the modernist's desire for precision, but, then again, consider the sense of disillusionment in a lot of modernist writing. Are the trends of psychology in the early 1900's similar or dissimilar to those of literature in the contemporary period? Sociology In 1936, John Maynard Keynes published "General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money" which challenged theories about the nature, causes and resolution of employment in economic society. In 1937 Talcott Parsons published "Structure of Social Action" which established his social action theory. In 1922 Howard Carter discovered King Tut's tomb in the Valley of the Kings Archaeology Piaget 1928 "Judgment and Reasoning In the Child" Epistomology The Four Stages of Development: Sensorimotor Preoperational Concrete Operational Formal Operational Objective vs. Subjective The psychology of the early 1900's began to focus on more physical and observable experiments and studies. This resulted in the emergence of Behaviorism as one of the dominant fields of study at the time. Psychology Economics
