We learned about literary analysis with the fifteen core terms in the rhetorical notebook, chose partner-specific questions from our Anne Frank literary analysis questions, studied a sample literary analysis slide for mini-presentations, and got to work on reading and writing the first draft of the slides. Our model slide is here.
HW Eng: Read your quarter 2 choice book this weekend!
After a vocabulary formative, we continued drafting and revising the literary analysis slides on our Anne Frank excerpt questions. Our model slide is here.
HW Eng: Read and bring your choice book to read in class tomorrow after you finish designing your Google slides on the Mac; the slide designing will happen in class tomorrow, so please remember to also bring your copy of Anne Frank's book and your draftwork which I passed back in class today.
After you finish drafting your slides on your questions by hand, please get out your Macbooks and design the slides on Google slides. Remember, each slide should have each of the following areas:
- the question number and the question fully typed out,
- an answer to the question,
- two areas of literary analysis identified and discussed,
- a deep thematic idea of significance,
- and a cited graphic.
You will present your slides to the class tomorrow. Please practice your mini-presentation with your partner today. What page or passages might you cue the class to open up to read with our copies of the diary? This is your chance to teach your class some really wonderful literary response ideas about a classic text. Our model slide is here. Read your choice book when you and your partner have finished designing and typing your slide.
HW Eng: Finish designing slides for Anne Frank presentations, which will happen on Wednesday. You and your classmates will teach each other, and please practice saying your mini-presentations aloud.
