August 27, 2012 What is your life’s blueprint?
Agenda for August 27, 2012 Warm Up: Journal Response to Image STEMS Close reading of “Blueprint Speech” by M.L. King with addition of figurative language codes (HIPSOMA) HOMEWORK: STEM Wordmaps are due Wednesday. Quiz Friday.
WHAT ARE “STEMS”? STEMS are parts of words borrowed from other languages. STEMS may be roots, prefixes, or suffixes. Latin and Greek are the most common source languages from which English has borrowed.
How can STEMS help me? Knowledge of the meaning of STEMS, along with use of context clues, can help you to decipher the meaning of many unfamiliar words you encounter. Mr. Morley’s sagacious advice has often prevented disastrous mistakes by the committee.
What do I have to do for each STEM? Learn the meaning of the STEM Find words that include the STEM, and examine how the meaning of the STEM contributes to the meaning of the whole word. Create a colorful illustration for the meaning of the STEM Correctly use one of the words based on the STEM in a sentence which includes a clear context clue (NOT A DEFINITION). WORD MAPS ARE DUE ON WEDNESDAY. Be prepared to demonstrate your knowledge of the STEM and your ability to use context clues on an assessment on FRIDAY.
Standards ELACC8RI1 – Cite the textual evidence that most strongly supports an analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text. ELACC8RI3 – Analyze how a text makes connections among and distinctions between individuals, ideas, or events (e.g. through comparisons, analogies, or categories) ELACC8SL1 a-d – Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 8 topics, texts, and issues, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly. ELACC8L.5a – Demonstrate understanding of figurative language, word relationships, and nuances in word meaning.
What am I learning today? Unit: How can I prepare today for my future? Lesson: How does MLK encourage students to think about for the future? What is the impact of MLK’s use of figurative language on his overall message? What will my life’s blueprint look like?
How will I show what I learned? Students will analyze Martin Luther King Jr.’s Blueprint speech and evaluate his message. Students will begin to create a blueprint for their life.
What information do you learn from the picture? What is the purpose? Who might use this type of drawing?
Take out your Thinking Note bookmark. Today we are going to talk about a blueprint for our own lives. To do this we are going to do a Close Read of a speech given by Dr. King to a group of junior high students in 1967.
Close Read Peruse the article for textual features and predict the content of the speech.
Close Read Follow along as I read the first few paragraphs, marking your Thinking Note symbols, underlining, and making marginal notes.
Also use these letters to identify the use of figurative language. H – hyperbole I – idiom P – personification S – simile O – onomatopoeia M – metaphor A - alliteration
Now It’s Your Turn. Use your Thinking Note symbols, underlining, and marginal notes to clarify your understanding as you read the rest of the speech. As you read, consider how you would answer this question: How does MLK encourage students for the future?
