06/06 Tues: Multi-Genre Project Work Day

posted Jun 6, 2017, 9:03 AM by Genevieve Hollerich   [ updated Jun 6, 2017, 9:33 AM ]

Learning Target(s): 
  • I can answer questions about the Multi-Genre Project. 
  • I can work on my Multi-Genre Project. 
  • I can start thinking about my Artist Statement. 
Warm Up: Take out your Multi-Genre Project assignment description and rubric, and answer the follow questions: 

1. Jay’s Multi-Genre Project consists of the following genre pieces and perspectives:
  • A story about zombies from a human’s perspective
  • A love poem about cheese from a mouse’s perspective 
  • An apology letter to a parent from a child’s perspective 
What’s the problem with this project, and what is it missing?

2. Our English 9 class takes a trip to Disney Land to celebrate the end of the year, but our plane crashes over the Rocky Mountains. Tragically, none of the pilots, your teachers, or the adult chaperones make it. Which of your classmates would you elect to lead you to safety?

3. Hot Cheetos or Takis? Why?

Classwork:
  • Share out Warm Ups answers. Problems: There does not appear to be any connection between the pieces (the project is supposed to tell a unified story), a genre piece is missing (there should be four, and one of them needs to be visual), no Artist Statement or cover.
  •  Work on your Multi-Genre Project.
  • Ask for help if you need it!
