1. 1 minute review - 3 types of sentences - hand-in to bin for credit 2. Read 3. The Introduction to the Literary Analysis. This is FOUNDATIONAL and important work. I am going slowly, and hopefully, all the students will catch on to this very important writing process.
1) 1 minute review - again (because they need to know this information) see below - hand in to bin for credit 2) continued to work on the first two parts of an Introduction to a Literary Analysis: 3) Share the knowledge: students will be in groups and they will write their hook and their connection to the written piece on chart paper chart paper will then go up on walls Students will do a museum walk to see which they liked and which ideas they want to 'steal' for their piece. NOTE: This was (the 2 sentences, hood and connection to literature,) a TOUGH slog. We will need to work on this concept!!! Any support from parents would be welcomed!
1. Students are really STRUGGLING with the (Vital) concept of writing/creating the Literary Essay. For a few days now, we have been working with 2 sentences that form the beginning of the introduction. They are: the hook, and the connection with literature. I am going to go slowly, real slowly, with this as a) it's an important concept in the English world and this is something that won't go away, and b) as a teacher, I have always followed the doctrine that I con't move on until EVERYONE experiences some mastery. Maybe someone is in the beginning stages of understanding and utilizing and maybe someone is rocking it, but everyone has to have that glaze taken off their eyes! I am going to include a couple of Youtube videos below as sometimes it is beneficial for students to hear someone else's voice!
