1 Big Things Come in Small Packages
Eleanora E Tate

2 Standard and EQ Standards: 7-RL.1 - Cite several pieces of textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text. 7-RL.3 - Analyze how particular elements of a story or drama interact (e.g., how setting shapes the characters or plot). Essential Question: How do we annotate the text to analyze falling action and resolution in a short story?

3 Past Learning

4 Present Learning Why are we learning to annotate? For PASS Testing
You will be asked to Annotate your 8th Grade Summer Reading Book! Skill needed for High School and College!

5 Annotating: Trying another strategy 
When we read, we QUESTION what is happening in the story. In Rogue Wave for example: Will a boat come to their rescue? Will Scoot be able to find the strength to escape without Sully’s help? As you read today, find two places in the story where you have a question. Annotate by putting a “?” next to the text and then ask you’re your question in the margin.

6 Example What did Tucker do to finally be accepted by his peers?

Let’s Review So far we’ve annotated: exposition conflict rising action climax TODAY WE WILL ANNOTATE FALLING ACTION

8 Falling Action Review What is falling action?
Where do you find falling action in a short story? How do you know when you’ve found the falling action?

9 Let’s Begin We know that the climax of the story is when the man is being rescued by Tucker and Richard. Let’s read on to find the falling action. With a partner, read lines Annotate falling action by underlining and writing in the margins Work through both conflicts 1. Tucker yearns for acceptance among peers 2. Man’s life is in danger from storm

10 In addition… Remember to try our new questioning strategy today!
Find TWO places in the reading where you can ask a question



13 CFU What was the falling action of both conflicts?
What did YOU find as the most helpful and easiest way to annotate falling action? Underlining? Circling? Writing in the margin? Where in the story did you have a question?

14 Resolution On your OWN, read lines 212-275
ANNOTATE the resolution of the story by underlining, circling, or writing in the margins. Again, find 2 places in the text where you can QUESTION the text. ANNOTATE like how I previously modeled.





19 Closure How do you see annotating being beneficial while reading?
Were you surprised by the resolution of the story? Is annotating something a reader would want to do EVERY TIME when reading?
