Most people view language arts and science as two separate and unrelated subjects, but true intelligence lies in seeing the interrelationship between all subjects. In this reading assignment, literature and science merge in a meeting between John Milton and Galileo. The article explores the influences Galileo may have had on Milton's writing as a result of a meeting between the two. Lovers of physics, astronomy, and literature will enjoy exploring this connection between science and the arts.
Please read the article, reflect on the questions, and be prepared to engage in a classroom discussion during the first week of school.
Have a great summer!
