Name Hour The Things I Carry 9 May 2014 Through Tim O’Brien’s description, we learn what these men carried with them in Vietnam was a direct reflection on who they were and what they valued. For example, Lieutenant Jimmy Cross carried letters from an unattainable girl. He also carried an unyielding passion and yearning for her. He often loses himself in his fantasies. His priorities are vividly described which reveals a great deal about the character of the man. On a current day level, we carry things with us everyday: in backpacks, purses, wallets, lockers, and cars. We also carry dreams, hopes, concerns, and emotions with us. In a one-page journal, write about what you “carry” each day. What do these things tell about who you are as a person? You will share with your green partner.
Read and write quietly. Put phones away unless you are using a dictionary or audiobook. Take notes on your character. Write annotated post-it notes about every 3 pages. (Share one at the end of the hour.) At the end of the hour, 3 people will be randomly called on to show their annotation to the class using the doc camera.
Read your journal to your partner. Listen to your partner read his/her journal. Share one of your annotations with your partner.
The reading quizzes will be summative. If you have an annotated post-it about every 5 pages, you may use your book for the last minute or two of the quizzes. If you earn at least a 2.5 on all the reading quizzes, you will not have to take the final exam on the book. The final exam on the book is the retake for the quizzes.
