If you have any late August work, drop it off on my desk before class begins. Let’s work on our next punctuation lesson; when done, complete the Punctuation lesson #3
Use quotation marks to indicate a person’s exact words Example: “My butt hurts,” complained Roger. In a “split quotation,” use quotation marks around each spoken part, Capitalize the beginning of a direct quotation, but don’t capitalize a fragment of a quote unless it’s the beginning of a sentence. Example: “Let’s leave now,” said Maria, “so we can go post this on Facebook.” In a quotation that’s not split, don’t place the closing quotation mark until after the person is done talking. This may be more than one sentence. Ex: “Come on in! I didn’t pee in the water!” shouted Ann.
Always place commas and periods inside the closing quotation marks. Always place semicolons and colons outside the closing quotes. Question marks and exclamation points are placed inside the closing quotes if the quote is a question or an exclamation; otherwise, place them outside the closing quotation marks. Ex.: “I see,” remarked Roberto, “that you peed your pants.” Joe yelled, “Let’s go”; however, I wasn’t ready. Were you surprised when he said, “You smell”? (The quote is not a question) I was stunned when she asked, “do you have six toes?”
Use quotation marks to enclose titled of chapters, articles, short stories, poems, songs, and other parts of books and magazines. Example: …an article entitled, “Corina’s Corner” Use quotation marks to enclose slang words, technical terms, and other expressions that are unusual in standard English. Ex.: I always considered him a “playa,” and he considered me a “gangsta.” Ex.: “The common cold is also called “coryza,” and chickenpox is called “varicella.”
Use single quotation marks to enclose a quotation within a quotation. Ex.: Our teacher said, “Your homework tonight is writing a twenty-seven page essay on ‘My Papa’s Waltz’ the poem.” Do NOT use quotation marks with indirect quotations. Ex.: My mom told me that she was going to slap me. (indirect) Ex.: My mom told me, “I’m going to slap you!” (direct) Ex.: Joe asked Sheila to rub his feet. (indirect) Ex.: “Will you rub my feet?” Joe asked Sheila. (direct)
Period 5: Turn in warm-ups on the stool after class. Mr. Estes says that the following website is a good one to browse college options: www.californiacolleges.edu. Write this down “Homework: Finish “Man V. Myth” chart– due tomorrow. “Continue ‘Noah v. Utnapishtim’ chart “Continue with World Literature Key Terms” Note: you should have “culture,” “pourquoi,” “myth,” “oral tradition literature,” already; we’ll go over “archetype” today…
Turn to page 31 in your World Literature textbooks to the section titled “Archetypes”. Volunteers to read?
STANDARDS Reading 3.7a: Contrast the major literary forms, techniques, and characteristics…
Write the following in your Key Terms list: An archetype is a situation, character, or image that appears again and again in literature and art. Example: the symbol of the four seasons (spring, summer, autumn, and winter) are archetypes that appear over and over again in literature. What do the seasons represent in art/literature? Can you think of other archetypes?
Try to figure out what these other common symbols or “archetypes” represent: The Joker Sunrise Princess Leia The color red A blind, wise old man A mountain top A main character’s dream
In The Epic of Gilgamesh and other ancient tales, we see a reoccurring archetype: a flood that wipes out the human race. Keep in mind that the Gilgamesh Epic was written far before the Bible and the cultures that wrote each story likely did not have any knowledge of one another. Why would both include a story of a flood that destroys the human race? What would be the symbolism or deeper meaning/purpose of a flood story?
Let’s take a look at the chart that you’ll fill out as we read “Noah and the Flood” in the textbook.
