Today we learned about efforts to keep the Irish language alive and vibrant and visited the Gaeltacht where Gaelic Irish is the first language for much of the population. We visited Sliabh Liag Cliffs and saw the austere landscape of this part of Ireland. Think about language loss and revival and the factors that lead to both in Ireland. Do you think the comparatively austere landscape of this part of Donegal has anything to do with the language spoken in this region? What were your thoughts about Sliabh Liag cliffs and the community that lives near them?
How to write the Perfect Blog (AKA the 3-Rs of an A-blog)
A perfect blog entry will not only Recall and Reflect on what you, did, observed and felt during the day but will bolster your personal opinions and reflections with Research from outside sources (e.g., class readings from Laulima). A perfect blog will discuss ecology and culture and how they shaped what you experienced on that day. Include both text and images.
