April 25 and 28 I can organize my writing in order to create a cohesive whole. I can evaluate the author’s use of parallel plots and sub plots. I can locate important details that support ideas in a text. I can provide an analysis with textual examples.
Bell Ringer Situation: In Lamb to the Slaughter, Mary Maloney thought she had the perfect husband. She loved everything about him-the way he walked, the way he sat in his chair, and the way he moved across a room. What would it be like to have the perfect mate? Directions: There is a new company called Mates’R Us Inc. This company can create whatever type of person you want. All you have to do is send them a letter in which you describe down to the last detail your ideal companion. The product you receive depends entirely on your detail description, so be sure that you include everything. What does the mate look like? Hair color? Eye color? Body type? What personality traits are a must? Honesty? Sense of humor? Don’t leave anything out! The happiness of your future is riding on this letter.
Formative Assessment Answer the questions on your paper then put answer into the clickers.

Write Screen Play Work with your “team” to write an outline for your role. You will need to create: your opening statement-give background, set the scene, etc. Interview questions for your witnesses- ask questions to the: grocer, police, detective, photographer, forensics, etc. A lot of the trial will be impromptu due to the fact that you will have to go off what the witness says. Jurors will divide up and help the other teams. You will have 15 minutes.
