Agenda Bellringer Iambic Pentameter Notes and Activity Paraphrasing Notes Introduction to the Prologue and Paraphrasing Activity Exit Slip Learning Target: I can paraphrase an existing work in order to determine and clarify the authors overall purpose.
Iambic Pentameter the pattern of 5 unstressed/stressed syllables in a line of poetry Shakespeare used Iambic Pentameter when composing most of his sonnets and other poetic works.
Iambic Pentameter Breaking Down Iambic Pentameter: IAMB = unstressed/stressed PENTA = 5 METER = line pattern ex: if YOU | would PUT | the KEY | inSIDE | the LOCK da DUM | da DUM | da DUM | da DUM | da DUM
Paraphrasing Notes To paraphrase an authors work is to restate their ideas in your own words. How is that different from summarizing? A summary of a passage includes only the main points of a passage in your own words. It should be much shorter than the original source. Paraphrasing is transforming the entirety of a passage into your own words. A paraphrased passage should be about as long as the original source. Tip: When paraphrasing, cover up all of the passage except the line you are currently working on. That way, you can be sure to restate most accurately the points in that line before moving on to the next!
Paraphrasing the Prologue 1 Two households, both alike in dignity, 2 In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, 3 From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, 4 Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. 5 From forth the fatal loins of these two foes 6 A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life; 7 Whose misadventured piteous overthrows 8 Do with their death bury their parents' strife. 9 The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love, 10 And the continuance of their parents' rage, 11 Which, but their children's end, nought could remove, 12 Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage; 13 The which if you with patient ears attend, 14 What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.
E XIT S LIP : The following excerpt is from Act I scene v of Romeo and Juliet when Romeo first sees Juliet during a dance at a party. Paraphrase the following four lines and make an inference as to how this scene will affect Shakespeares purpose within this play. 50 The measure done, I'll watch her place of stand, 51 And, touching hers, make blessed my rude hand. 52 Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight! 53 For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night.
