Making Movies Lights Script Director Actors Camera Activate Prior Knowledge
Graphic Sources: Some graphic sources are maps, time lines, charts, diagrams, and pictures with captions. A graphic source makes information easy to see and understand. Preview graphic sources to help predict what an article or story may be about. As you read, compare the information in graphic sources with the information in the text.
Prior Knowledge: Good readers use what they already know to help them understand what they read. Connect what you are reading with what you have read before and what you know from personal experience. Use what you already know to understand the information in graphic sources.
Write: 1.Read “Computer Art and What It Takes.” As you read, make a list of computer graphics tools that are new to you. 2.Write down three things you learned as you read the article and studied the picture.
Background Landscape Miniature Prehistoric Reassembled Vocabulary Word List Two days ago David bumped his desk spilling his collection of miniature dinosaurs onto the floor. He threw the little critters into a box. Yesterday, he'd reassembled them on his desk. He would set them up again the same way today. David turned out his lights and went to bed. Suddenly, he heard loud explosions that sounded like giant cannon blasts. He opened his eyes and found himself outdoors, looking at a strange landscape, a field of grass and shrubs. In the distance, a volcano was puffing smoke. Also in the background, a herd of dinosaurs was grazing. How could that be? They looked so real, but dinosaurs lived in prehistoric times. "I must be dreaming!" David told himself. And then he woke up. Introduce Vocabulary Read the following passage and look for five lesson vocabulary words.
Number your paper 1-5. Then listen as I read one to two sentences orally. Write down a synonym or meaning for each vocabulary word. Which context clues helped you figure out the word meanings? Use your vocabulary words to write analogies. Example: Landscape is to scenery as miniature is to small in scale. You may use a dictionary, glossary, or thesaurus to fine analogous words.
Background The part of a picture or scene toward the back.
Landscape A view of scenery on land.
Miniature Reduced image or likeness; done on a small scale.
Prehistoric Belonging to periods before recorded history.
Reassembled Came, brought, or put together again.
More Words to Know Boundaries: limits Prototype: the first or original type or model of anything that is designed or constructed. Spectacular: making a great display
Practice Vocabulary Lesson: Does a car belong in a prehistoric landscape? Can a puzzle be reassembled? Would a miniature volcano cause a giant explosion? Which would most likely appear in the backgroung of a scene, an actor or mountain scenery? What objects might you see in a landscape model for a movie about the moon?
Vocabulary Strategy: Prefixes: Pre- and re- A prefix is a syllable added at the beginning of a base word that has a meaning of its own. Recognizing a prefix can help you figure out the word’s meaning. For example, pre- means “before.” If you prearrange something, you arrange it ahead of time. The prefix re- means “again.” If you reheat soup, you warm it up again. 1.Look at an unfamiliar word to see it has a base word you know. 2.Check to see if a prefix has been added to the base word. 3. Ask yourself how the prefix changes the meaning of the base word. 4.Try the meaning in the sentence. Does it make sense? As you read “Visiting the Past,” find words with prefixes. Use the prefixes to help you figure out the meanings of the words.
Genre: Expository Nonfiction Expository nonfiction explains what certain thins are and how they came to be. As you read, notice how the author explains how artists make miniature models for movie sets.
