No class on Friday--We didn't cover Henry Wadsworth Longfellow--We didn't read "The Lottery" by Shirley Jackson--We read "Those Winter Sundays" by Robert Hayden--"The Professor" by Joshua Mehigan--"Spitwads" by Michael McFee
The students continued political cartoon work on Wednesday. On Friday, the students will write an essay. On Thursday, the students will have a figurative language and sound device scavenger hunt! In pairs, they will research poems to find figurative language and sound devices, and then they will share what they found at the end of class, meaning and literary devices. Musts: metaphor, simile, repetition, rhyme.
Tuesday: The students will review TLI multiple choice items. Thursday and Friday: The students will distinguish the difference between the written word and media. The students will also identify figurative language in Dr. Sueuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
Not all students work at the same pace. I have not laid out specific steps for each day because some students are ahead, and some students are behind. The whole process that students should follow is on the links provided. We are continuing the work on research papers next week; there is also a poetry TLI test on Thursday.
Wednesday: Make up day! Students will read "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" and "Mending Wall" by Robert Frost.----------------Thursday: The students will analyze "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" and "Mending Wall" by Robert Frost to gain a deeper understanding of the impact of imagery and metaphor on meaning/interpretation of literature.--Friday: The students will read "The Jilting of Granny Weatherall" p. 844 by Katherine Anne Porter and answer the review and assess questions on p. 854.
