New Classroom Routines This week I will be implementing the following new routines. Weekly Work: any and all bellwork, practice, and other classwork that is not taken up. This is taken up each week and counts as a classwork grade (20%), but does not preclude other graded classwork assignments. Remember to head each entry in your Weekly Work with a date and title. Class Participation: a participation grade (20%) will now be submitted every week for each student based on the rubric distributed. Please look over this rubric, as you are expected to perform accordingly. Visual Cues: icons representing student expectations will be provided throughout class. = Don’t talk. = Raise hand to speak. = Write. =Speak openly. = Work together quietly.
Do Now Analyze the document below, identify the literary element that is at play here, and be able to discuss your interpretation.
English II 1.Open your textbook to “Contents of the Dead Man’s Pocket” on page 118. 2.As we read, I want everyone to read aloud simultaneously. a)If you refuse to participate, you will receive a 0 in participation for the day. b)If you pretend to read, you will be singled out and be made to read aloud to the class by yourself. c)Follow my lead as reader, but I will occasionally stop to hear the class without me. 3.We will stop occasionally to discuss literary elements. As we do so, you need to participate in the discussion and take notes.
Pre-AP and Eng III Honors 1.Move into your Expert group (number group) at this time. 2.Each group will receive an assignment on a different aspect of the novel (plot, characters, settings, symbols etc.). Collaborate to complete this assignment thoroughly. 3.After this part of the activity, students will return to their Home groups where each member will present the conclusions made in their Expert group.
Irony It is the difference between what we expect to happen, and what actually does happen. It is often used to add suspense, shock, or humor. It is also used to keep the reader thinking about the moral of the story.
Verbal Irony You use it everyday when you say one thing and really mean another. It is the same as sarcasm. Example: When you appear to be sick and someone asks you if you’re okay. You say “Of course!” But in the meantime you are vomiting and fainting. A person asks for help from his friends and is ignored, replying with “Thanks for the help, guys!” Can you think of some other examples?
Situational Irony Occurs when a situation turns out to be the opposite of what you thought it would be. Example: The teacher’s daughter is a High School drop out. Someone moving to avoid a sprinkler and falling into a swimming pool. Can you think of some other examples?
Dramatic Irony Occurs when the audience knows something that the characters in the story, on the screen, or on the stage do not know. Example: A horror movie scene in which an unsuspecting victim wanders into the woods where the audience knows the killer is waiting. The scene in Romeo and Juliet when Romeo poisons himself immediately before Juliet awakes, something the audience knew would happen. Can you think of some other examples?
Irony Homework Compose a 2-3 paragraph narrative or scenario that correctly uses and labels all 3 types of irony (verbal, situational, and dramatic).
Do Now 1.Take out your irony homework and make sure your name is on it. 2.Trade with a neighbor and write “Graded by” and your name on that paper. 3.Check your neighbors work and verify that they used and labeled all three types of irony correctly in their homework. 4.If they did this incorrectly, mark it wrong and write them a note telling them how to correct their mistake(s).
Do Now 5 th period is silent today. 1.Everyone must be seated in their assigned seat. 2.Pass your irony homework to the front of your row. 3.Write down the following prompt: In 3 paragraphs (15 sentences minimum), explain why you are lucky to receive the education that you are receiving. Explain why you’re more fortunate than children in 3 rd world countries who do not have access to such a free and accommodating school system. Then, explain how you’re taking advantage of this education and not wasting this gift that you’ve been given. This is due tomorrow.
Pre-AP and Eng III Honors 1.Back in Home Groups, each member must present the insights and conclusions discussed in each Expert Group (12 minutes). 2.Your Home Group needs to absorb this information and brainstorm to compose a complex thesis statement, synthesizing the presented ideas into an overall thematic lesson from the text (5 minutes). 3....wut? 4.Now, let’s have a hand’s free, whole-group discussion about these ideas. Let’s circle up and use “accountable talk.”
For example, in The Glass Castle Symbol + Association = Significance Fire + Jeanette’s accident, Tinkerbell, hotel and laboratory fires, Rex’s zone of heat = A tangled mess of emotion toward her family that has the power to both devastate and revive.
Symbol + Association = Significance Now, analyze a major symbol from “Contents of the Dead Man’s Pocket” Yellow sheet of paper + ? = ?
How does this plot and the analysis of the sheet of paper as a symbol contribute to an overall thematic lesson? What is that lesson that the reader takes away from the story?
Quarter Exam Review Items Reading comprehension/making inferences Imagery and its effect Mood/Tone Essay organization Parallel Structure Conflict Cause and Effect Fact vs. Opinion Point of View
Reading comprehension/making inferences Most people attribute the changes in society of the last 10-15 years to the Internet. In doing so they fail to give enough credit to cell phones and other portable communication devices. Such technological devices have fractured society not by driving wedges between people, but by allowing people to drive wedges between themselves. Before cell phones and other portable communication devices, people could not communicate at a distance as freely as they do today. Friends who chose to go to different colleges would communicate through letters and infrequent phone calls. Upon arriving at college, they found that they could not rely on old friends to be there all the time, and because of this, they attempted to make new friends. Today, these same people do not have to seek out new friends because they can communicate instantly with old friends across great distances through phone calls and text messages. As a result, they meet fewer new people and spend less time outside of the world in which they feel comfortable. The fractures that we see in today’s society are a direct result of this kind of change. Technology gives people the option of not exploring the worlds that exist outside of their daily lives, interests, and closest friends. Far too many people choose that option.
Reading comprehension/making inferences 1.What can the reader infer about people who depend too heavily on technological devices? 2.How does the author feel about cell phones? 3.What can the reader infer about cell phones?
Imagery and its effect 1."Her anxious thoughts buzzed through her mind like a swarm of angry bees bent on destruction."

Mood and Tone 1.There is a place in London, England, where you can meet many famous (and infamous) people. You can meet kings and queens, presidents and their ladies, and theater and movie stars. All of the people are wax likenesses of many of the world's best-known figures—both good and evil. Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum on Baker Street began during the time of the French Revolution by Marie Grosholtz, who was married to a man named Francois Tussaud. What is the tone of this passage?
Mood and Tone 2. David Douglas was a British botanist. He was born in Scone, Perth, Scotland, in 1798. Douglas worked in the Glasgow botanical gardens. Then he came to the United States to work as a collector for the British Royal Horticultural Society. During the time he was in the U.S., he discovered more than 150 varieties of native American plants and trees. He introduced all of them into England. The Douglas fir and the Douglas squirrel were named after this botanist. The tone of this paragraph could best be described as what?

POV My last day in Texas, I woke up to the sound of my mother—belting out orders to my dad and the movers. Contrary to my feelings, I could see that the weather was bright and sunny. I sat up and gazed out at my beloved backyard one last time, where I had spent many days, reading, writing, and daydreaming. (In Boston, there is no equivalent. The closest haven Ive found is a nearby fountain with surrounding patches of green.) I reluctantly stepped out of bed and into the bathroom, slamming the door behind me, letting my mother know not to worry, I was up. By the time I opened the bathroom door again, my bed was already gone, packed up and tucked into the moving van outside. I threw my remaining belongings into my backpack and set out to walk through the house that was no longer ours. My footsteps echoed in the empty corridors. There you are, Shannon! Good morning, sweetie. Pecking me on the cheek, mother guided me to the kitchen. I made you some breakfast burritos to eat before we go. Come eat them before they get cold. 1.
