Am Lit DO NOW 8-18-14 What do you think it says about Native American culture if they valued oral tradition? (Deep thought: so think about how history and literature are passed on in this tradition. Think about what kinds of interactions would have to happen and how much value these people must have put on those interactions…) Take out all Native American Literature notes, stories, essays, handouts, homework etc.
Success Today Means 8-18 Students will prepare for their NA Quiz tomorrow by collaborating in small groups over their responses to critical thinking questions. Success is demonstrating by knowing the correct answer or taking notes on answers to study/review tonight.
Am Lit DO NOW: 8-19-14 What is one example of an archetype from our Native American Literature? (It could be a character, setting, or plot archetype). Have a separate sheet of loose leaf to use for the quiz to follow
“The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano” by: Olaudah Equiano To follow the quiz
Am Lit: After quiz Turn in paper quiz to basket, answer sheet to the US MAIL BOX, return clicker to case. Take a vocab sheet and predict the definitions filling in the column under “Predicted Meaning.” Then start the HW: 3 interesting facts about Olaudah Equiano (pg. 82) Notes on bolded terms pg. 83. Define vocab words (complete the vocab worksheet
Success Today Means 8-19 Students demonstrate their knowledge over NA Lit so far and participate in the reflection over the data, determining ways to be more successful in the future. Students will use active reading strategies to take notes over a historical person and literary terms like Slave Narrative.
Am Lit DO NOW 8-20 Reflect on your quiz score: where did you mess up during that unit? Where could I have helped you more? What was the hardest part about NA literature? What are some facts you know about the American Slave Trade, slavery in America, or slavery in general? Have your notes from page 83.
Success Today Means 8-20 Students actively read in large group and/or in small groups attempting to understand Equiano’s story first and then to find evidence to help suggest why he wrote it (his purpose in writing his story)
American Narrative Tradition One of four traditional types of early American narratives Slave Narratives – an autobiographical account of the life of an enslaved person These narratives supported the abolitionist cause by revealing the horrors of slavery.
Am Lit: Do Now 8/21/14 Name three things about Equiano’s story that you heard someone else say in class yesterday. If you were absent, tell me three details you remember from Equiano’s story.
Success Today Means Students read well enough to answer comprehension questions. Students work collaboratively enough to suggest Equiano’s PURPOSE in writing this story. (We have to put ourselves in his time, and then find EVIDENCE in the story to support our claim.)
Am Lit: Do Now 8/22/13 What was Equiano’s purpose for writing his autobiography. Sample response sentence frame: “Equiano’s purpose in writing his story is_________________ because he says “___________” which shows ________” Equiano’s purpose for writing his story is ________ because he _______________.”
Success Today 8/22 Students ACTIVELY engage in group work sharing, debating, discussing the ideas prompted by the study guide questions. Students know what they “need to know” in order to study vocab and the story and the SKILLS (like figuring out the purpose) for the quiz Monday.
