Tuesday       9/26

Reminders-- rude behavior results in a lower participation grade and is never ignored.  You may not know it... don't be offended-- that's why I'm telling you!  Heads up.  No sleeping.  Water bottles in class are a courtesy so don't "pop" them absentmindedly or suck on them loudly like a baby.  Don't randomly get up to go to the trash during instruction... there is plenty of time.  If you need to eat see me about your schedule and class courtesy.  No touching others or their things.  Use common sense.  If behaviors continue expect disciplinary action and limits to privilege due to your 1) lack of reasonable self control expected at this age 2) intentional disruption or insubordination 3) bullying/harassing behavior.





INTRODUCTION TO THE NEW UNIT-- Unit Objectives: Students read the Greek tragedy Oedipus the King. The longest text in the NYS CURRICULUM module, it allows students to analyze how multiple central ideas are developed and refined throughout the drama; among the many themes developed in the play is Oedipus’s guilt in relation to the discovery of his past. Students will continue to produce multi-paragraph writing and participate in structured discussions to build mastery of speaking and listening skills in anticipation of the End-of-Unit Assessment in Unit 3, an evidence-based discussion of multiple nonfiction texts.

We begin to read together.   We stop and take notes as we progress.  Ask questions and research!

HW-- Share Sheet #2 handed out Tuesday for pages 3-4.

IT IS NOT "AVERAGE" TO TURN THINGS IN LATE or be UNPREPARED.

Consider that 75% "C" is half way between perfect and 50%-- or a correct answer determined by a flip of a coin.  Many students believe that 65% is average.  It is not.2.0 GPA

WHY is this important to understand?  CHECK OUT College Admissions Requirements!  HERE  And HERE
So... work on your college admissions NOW...  9, 10, and 11 are key because you will not have completed your senior year when you are still applying!

What does 2.0 GPA mean?

  • 2.0 GPA is equivalent to 75% on percentile scale 
  • 2.0 GPA is considered as ‘C’ grade

    Colleges use a variety of grading systems to let the enrolled students track their progress. Grades depend on class hours, credits and test and homework scores the students actually attain. Most colleges score with a Grade Point Average system. Students who are used to a letter grading system should note a 2.0 Grade Point Average is similar to a ‘C’ average. For more comparisons, use the handy grade chart below.

     






  • Print out or answer the following on a separate sheet of paper due TUESDAY:

    Q1 Week 6

    Oedipus Presentations and Assessment.

    Begin preparing for a group presentation to the class about your assigned group supporting questions-- USE EVIDENCE BASED CLAIMS-- WHAT IN THE TEXT HELPS YOU ANSWER THE QUESTION AND WHAT DO EXPERTS SAY?  -- be sure to identify the "experts" you will use (website and author if possible-- no wiki).

     

     

     

    THREE  THINGS ARE DUE FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL AS PART OF THIS ASSESSMENT

    YOU ARE PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FOLLOWING:

    1 one paragraph answering the essential question

    2 second paragraph answering the supporting question assigned to your group

    3 contributing to the presentation of your answer to the supporting question as part of the group-- each group decides on what members contribute based on how they decide to present

     

     

     

     

     

    YOU DO NOT KNOW THE ANSWERS YET.  YOUR JOB IS TO RESEARCH or FIND THEM.

    GUIDELINES--

    1. FORMAT FOR PRESENTATION IS UP TO GROUP! HOWEVER; ALL MEMBERS MUST CONTRIBUTE EQUALLY.  
    Individual’s names (for individual credit) must be on each slide in a presentation.  "JOBS" MUST BE CREATED AND DISCUSSED BEFORE YOU BEGIN!  THIS PRESENTATION AND WRITING ASSIGNMENT COUNTS AS TWO FULL ASSESSMENT (TEST) GRADES.  YOU ARE EXPECTED TO WORK AT HOME OR MAKE ARRANGEMENTS IF YOU NEED ADDITIONAL TIME.

    2. IF A MEMBER IS NOT CONTRIBUTING THEIR PORTION IS SCORED APART FROM THE WHOLE!  IF A MEMBER IS GOING TO BE ABSENT OR ON VACATION FOR A WEEK THEY MUST MAKE UP FOR THEIR ABSENCE. I HAVE SCHEDULED THREE ADDITIONAL DAYS IN THE COMPUTER LAB   10 / 27 -- 10 / 30 -- 10 / 31  BE ABLE TO COMPLETE THE PROJECT IN TWO-- WRITE THE FINAL DRAFT OF THE PARAGRAPH ON THE LAST DAY.

    3. ADDITIONALLY, EACH MEMBER MUST SUBMIT THEIR OWN TWO PARAGRAPHS ANSWERING THE ESSENTIAL AND SUPPORTING QUESTION DUE ON THE DATE OF PRESENTATION.  While they may be similar in content they should not be shared or copied.  Each writer is unique.  THEY MUST INCLUDE EVIDENCE FROM THE TEXT.  IF YOU FIND OTHER EXPERTS (like shmoop) BE SURE TO GIVE CREDIT BY USING QUOTATION MARKS AND PARENTHESIS--

    EXAMPLE:
    "Teiresias says with great foreboding and foreshadowing, 'You do not want to hear what I have to say.' (Roughly speaking, anyway.) Teiresias continues to insist that it is better for him to leave rather than speak" (SHMOOP).

    I SUGGEST YOU BEGIN RESEARCHING THE ANSWERS TO THE FOLLOWING:


    The Essential Question for this Unit:

    What lessons does Sophocles include in his play Oedipus?

     Supporting questions for focus assigned to groups for research:

    Group 1 ---  What is Sophocles position on Power and Pride as revealed in his play Oedipus Rex?

    Group 2 ---  What is Sophocles position on The Limits of Knowledge as revealed in Oedipus Rex?

    Group 3---  What is Sophocles position on Fate vs. Free Will as revealed in his play Oedipus Rex?

    Group 4---  What is Sophocles position on Human Suffering as revealed in his play Oedipus Rex?

    Group 5---  What is Sophocles position on Moral Responsibility as revealed in his play Oedipus Rex?

    DUE AT THE END OF CLASS:

    Write a formal letter to thank veterans or their families that you would feel comfortable sending to them on veterans day including all of the following:

    Block Format

    When writing formal or business letters, you must pay special attention to the format and font used. The most common layout of a business letter is known as block format. Using this format, the entire letter is left justified and single spaced except for a double space between paragraphs.  If hand writing it must be neat!

    Parts of a Formal / Business Letter

    This resource is organized in the order in which you should write a business letter, starting with the sender's address if the letter is not written on letterhead.

    Sender's Address

    The sender's address usually is included in letterhead. If you are not using letterhead, include the sender's address at the top of the letter one line above the date. Do not write the sender's name or title, as it is included in the letter's closing. Include only the street address, city, and zip code. 

    Date

    The date line is used to indicate the date the letter was written. However, if your letter is completed over a number of days, use the date it was finished in the date line. When writing to companies within the United States, use the American date format. (The United States-based convention for formatting a date places the month before the day. For example: June 11, 2001. ) Write out the month, day and year two inches from the top of the page. Depending which format you are using for your letter, either left justify the date or tab to the center point and type the date.

    Inside Address

    The inside address is the recipient's address. It is always best to write to a specific individual at the firm to which you are writing. If you do not have the person's name, do some research by calling the company or speaking with employees from the company. Include a personal title such as Ms., Mrs., Mr., or Dr. Follow a woman's preference in being addressed as Miss, Mrs., or Ms. If you are unsure of a woman's preference in being addressed, use Ms. If there is a possibility that the person to whom you are writing is a Dr. or has some other title, use that title. Usually, people will not mind being addressed by a higher title than they actually possess. To write the address, use the U.S. Post Office Format. For international addresses, type the name of the country in all-capital letters on the last line. The inside address begins one line below the sender's address or one line below the date. It should be left justified, no matter which format you are using.  You may use the following

     

    Our Veterans

    c/o

    The White House
    1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
    Washington, DC 20500

    Salutation

    Use the same name as the inside address, including the personal title. If you know the person and typically address them by their first name, it is acceptable to use only the first name in the salutation (for example: Dear Lucy:). In all other cases, however, use the personal title and last/family name followed by a colon. Leave one line blank after the salutation. 

    If you don't know a reader's gender, use a nonsexist salutation, such as their job title followed by the receiver's name. It is also acceptable to use the full name in a salutation if you cannot determine gender. For example, you might write Dear Chris Harmon: if you were unsure of Chris's gender.

    Body

    For block and modified block formats, single space and left justify each paragraph within the body of the letter. Leave a blank line between each paragraph. When writing a business letter, be careful to remember that conciseness is very important. In the first paragraph, consider a friendly opening and then a statement of the main point. The next paragraph should begin justifying the importance of the main point. In the next few paragraphs, continue justification with background information and supporting details. The closing paragraph should restate the purpose of the letter and, in some cases, request some type of action.

    FOR CREDIT THE LETTER MUST REMAIN RESPECTFUL AND CONTAIN NO ERRORS OR SLANG

    Closing

    The closing begins at the same vertical point as your date and one line after the last body paragraph. Capitalize the first word only (for example: Thank you) and leave four lines between the closing and the sender's name for a signature. If a colon follows the salutation, a comma should follow the closing; otherwise, there is no punctuation after the closing.

    Begin New Unit:  Short Stories -- Fiction and non fiction with annotation. Additionally, we are close reading and learning vocabulary from context. This foundation is one built upon throughout the year, so its continued practice and improvement here is critical. Students will expand upon the purposes of close reading and will begin learning to read closely as they examine Karen Russell’s short story, “St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves.”  Additionally,  we examine NON FICTION in relationship to the essential question and text.

    We again focus on the skills required in the process of exploring a question and using evidence to develop understanding.  English is pre-law and pre business in addition to an essential set of skills in college and life.

    NOTES/SKILLS/KEY CONCEPTS:
    Question Exploration Routine  /  Evidence Based Claims

    MORAL BEHAVIOR IN ANIMALS  HERE

    What happens when two monkeys are paid unequally? Fairness, reciprocity, empathy, cooperation -- caring about the well-being of others seems like a very human trait. But Frans de Waal shares some surprising videos of behavioral tests, on primates and other mammals, that show how many of these moral traits all of us share.

    Is this genetic stuff in the Island of Dr. Moreau possible?  Based on the following video give a short answer using sentences and some direct evidence-- turn this in.


    CRISPR gene drives allow scientists to change sequences of DNA and guarantee that the resulting edited genetic trait is inherited by future generations, opening up the possibility of altering entire species forever. More than anything, the technology has led to questions: How will this new power affect humanity? What are we going to use it to change? Are we gods now? Join journalist Jennifer Kahn as she ponders these questions and shares a potentially powerful application of gene drives: the development of disease-resistant mosquitoes that could knock out malaria and Zika.

    The Essential Question for this unit:

    What does it mean to be a human being?

    Supporting Questions:

    1. 1. What does it mean to be an outsider?
    2. 2. What is a dominant culture?
    3. 3. Is it easier for some people to fit in to the dominant society than others? Why?
    4. 4. Is fitting into the dominant society desirable? Why/ why not?
    5. 5. What common themes unify the experience of being an outsider?
    6. 6. How do we respond to forced assimilation?
    7. 7. Does the way we react shape who we are? How?




    PART I and STUDY QUESTIONS as assigned.

    Karen Russell’s short story, “St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves”  
    Continue Close Reading-- be prepared to turn in your annotations and for additional assessment.


    Besides being prepared for the vocabulary...
    NEW SKILLS TO PRACTICE


    Focus in your annotations on questioning the text
    and predicting
    based on your questions.


    Identify Literary Devices the author is using:
    Metaphor
    Imagery
    Characterization
    P.O.V. (POINT OF VIEW)
    Irony


    In order to answer these questions we will rely on a variety of sources and follow along with the Question Exploration Routine  while we do close reading and answer study questions.

    You select to work in pairs or alone.  Close reading is a skill that is not mastered working in large groups copying the answers.  Copying will result in a lowered grade...  it's easy to spot!

    Proposal    and    Rubric   

    Typed project proposal and rubric due Friday 12 /8

    We will be in the computer lab 12 7 and 12 8-- if you are absent it is up to you to find a way to type the project but I will accept a handwritten photocopy instead on the day you return (go to library).

    YOU MUST GET APPROVAL FOR PROJECT AND RUBRIC

     

    1 Read for 10 minutes and count the pages you have read

    2 Divide this by 10

    3 Multiply by the total number of pages

    ---this gives you the total number of minutes it will take to read the book

    4 Divide this number by six to allow one week to work on project before due date

    --- this gives you the number of minutes you need to read each week

    5 Divide by 7 and this gives the number of minutes you should read each day

    I MUST READ ________MINUTES EACH DAY TO COMPLETE THIS PROJECT.

    include this calculation and statement in your proposal.

    Tuesday      12/5
    At start of class--  Open your notebook and have a pen or pencil ready.
    We will take notes as needed and be writing--
    And, yes, you will have to turn something in.






    REVIEW THE NOTES ON POINT OF VIEW AS NEEDED:  HERE
    OR USE THE COPY OF NOTES AND ASSIGNMENT HANDED OUT IN CLASS





    "Point of View, Voice, and Perspective"

    VOICE -- can be defined as the distinct personality, style, or point of view of a piece of writing or any other creative work

    PERSPECTIVE--  When a text is written from a specific characters best interest, feelings, and experiences.

    WHEN WRITING ABOUT LITERATURE WE USE THE TERM:   

    POINT OF VIEW (POV)

    Point of view is a reflection of the opinion an individual from real life or fiction can have.

    Examples of point of view belong to one of these three major kinds:

    1. First Person point of view involves the use of either of the two pronouns “I” and “we.”   Example: “I felt like I was getting drowned with shame and disgrace.”

    2. Second Person point of view employs the pronoun “you.”  Example:  Sometimes you cannot clearly discern between anger and frustration.”

    3. Third Person point of view uses pronouns like “he”, “she”, “it”, “they” or a name. Example:  “Mr. Stewart is a principled man. He acts 'by the book' and never lets you trick him easily.”







    NOW THE ASSIGNMENT

    You may work alone or move with a single partner.

    Use your knowledge of the story (Little Red Riding Hood) or the notes on the handout to create a new version of the story with the following guidelines: 

     

    1)Tell it from the wolf’s perspective.

    2) Tell it in the first person point of view. 

     

    You have 20 minutes to prepare a final copy.

     

    When you are done you should able to explain

     

    which version you prefer

     

     using direct evidence and be able to share your story.






    Overall Sample Story: A young girl sets out to bring a basket of goodies to her grandmother. She is warned by her mother not to talk to strangers and not to take short cuts.  On her way through the forest, she meets with a wolf who convinces her to take another path with the promise that it is a shortcut. In fact, it is a longer path that delays the girl’s arrival at her grandmother’s house. In the extra time it took the girl to get there, the wolf was able to get to the house first, eat her grandmother, and then dress as the grandmother in order to fool the girl to get close enough to eat. The girl notices that “grandmother” doesn’t look the same but is too late and it eaten in one gulp. A passing hunter notices and chops the wolf in two, rescuing the girl and her grandmother, who were eaten whole.


    Main Character: Little Red Riding Hood is an overly confident twelve-year old girl who gets into trouble because she is impulsive and overly trusting. Her credibility, and often safety, are undermined by her flights of romanticism and fantasy.

    Influence Character: The Wolf is a vicious, yet charming, “man-eater” that has seen the game in the forest disappearing due to human hunting. He is hungry and growing desperate.

    Relationship: The cat and mouse nature of the relationship between The Wolf and Little Red Riding Hood has The Wolf pretending to be another traveler in the forest in order to fool and mislead LRRH. He manipulates her to take a longer path, promising that it is shorter, etc. and later impersonates her grandmother in order to lure LRRH close enough to eat. As you can see, the four lines emphasize different aspects of the story. The Overall Story shows the “big picture.” The Main Character shows the personal perspective. The Influence Character shows an alternative, and challenging perspective to that of the Main Character.
