Unit One: The Impact of Craft on Meaning Ms. Barrus – English 10/CP English 10
Unit Rationale Authors write with the intent to convey meaning – both explicitly and implicitly. Authors use specific techniques to emphasize and enhance meaning and/or message Our understanding of a text is deepened by becoming aware of these techniques and the ways they impact the meaning of the text
Our Path 1.Reading and annotation of text 2.Formal response based on annotation 3.Group discussion based on formal response
Annotation “Marking up” text as we read ▫Highlighting, marginal notes, post-it’s, etc. Lets us interact with text as we read ▫Analytical reading is an active process Sometimes informal, sometimes follows a determined protocol.
Annotation Protocol 3 APPARTS ▫Author ▫Place (and time) ▫Prior knowledge ▫Audience ▫Reason ▫The main idea ▫Significance
Informal annotation Make connections ▫Text to text ▫Text to self ▫Text to world Pose questions/express confusion State an opinion Make inferences Identify and comment on significant passages Identify and comment on literary and rhetorical techniques (figurative language, allusions, tone, diction
Let’s get it Read and formally/informally annotate pp As you read, ask yourself ▫What specific techniques does the author use? ▫How do these techniques ad deeper meaning to the narrative? ▫Finally, based on what you HAVE read, what is true grit?
Let’s Do This Look over your annotations. Do you have all components of SATTT or SOLLIDDD annotation structure for pages 11-67? For the whole novel? Do you have additional informal annotations that go beyond merely underlining? Could you add some observations to the items you have underlined?
One step further Read and annotate “The Truth About Grit” using the APPARTS protocol. When finished compose a concise definition of “grit” as you have come to understand it through your reading.
