Transcript of Copy of Lesson Plan on examples of Symbolism and Gender Inequality in Chapters I-XXVII of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Do Now: Fold your paper hot dog style (the long way) and in the left column write down four objects that have meaning to you, while on the right column write a sentence explaining why they are important to you. Examples of everyday symbols range from:
* A green light that tells you to continue driving on the road. Go ahead, everything is okay.
*Many superstitious people believe that black cats are a symbol of bad luck.
* A golden cross on a woman's neck can symbolize that the wearer is religious.
* The scar on Harry Potter's head is symbolic of his connection to Voldemort since birth - a connection to evil. Symbols are everyday objects that hold meaning to us. Identify THREE symbols that pervade "The Coming of the Raven."

* We'll form partnerships.
* Work cooperatively to fill out all of the boxes on the graphic organizer.
* You can review the text, if you find that helpful.
* You have ten minutes! Good luck! :) Lesson 1: Symbolism in
"The Coming of Raven" Lesson Objective:

Identifying symbolism in Native American story and relate it to your personal experiences. THINK-PAIR-SHARE: Exit Slip and Learning Log:
write a brief learning log entry on one thing that they have learned in this lesson and how you would teach a person what symbolism is.

Homework: Think of an artifact that has symbolic value to you. In the beginning of the next day’s class, all of you will participate in a See-Think-Wonder routine with a partner as a Do Now exercise. Moreover, you will upload your graphic organizers on the class wiki so that everyone has access to the various symbols that pervade the novel. Do Now: Discuss your artifact in groups of three at
the beginning of class. Spend one minute showing
your artifact, while the other students in the group will jot down
information on the artifact in their learning logs.
After three minutes of repeating this task for all three students,
one student from each group will spend a brief minute sharing a
common theme that each of the students in their group had
regarding their three different objects. 1. “Charity begins at home.
2. A woman’s place begins at home.
3. People are often judged based on their social class or level of wealth.
4. Having a loving family can be worth more than being rich.
5. Young women should not marry men who are much older than they are” Activity #1:
Write a brief sentence or two for each statement, then spend two minutes discussing them with a partner. Afterwards we will share our answers as a group. In Class Gender Inequality Activity:

You will be broken up into groups of three according to the assigned number given to you. All of you will work on filling out a graphic organizer that deals with the theme of Gender Inequality in the novel. Graphic Organizer on Theme Theme: The theme refers to the central message in a piece of literature.
Themes are usually implicit in the story and are emphasized through the characters' dialogue, through plot, setting, and even the climax. One way to identify theme is by looking at the character's motivation and interaction in others.

How is Gender apparent in Jane's interaction with other characters?
Look at Jane's dialogue with other characters. Exit Slip and Homework assignment for the next day: (5 minutes)

Write a brief learning log entry on what you know, what you want to know, and what you have learned in this class.
Then for homework you will have the option to write a one page response on how male characters such as Mr. Brockelhurst and Mr. Rochester threaten Jane’s journey for equality and independence or draw a scene from the novel which demonstrates gender inequality. Symbolism Graphic Organizer: Notice: objects often "mean" more than just a simple "thing" - rather they often represent an important moment, relationship, memory, feeling or idea. These items symbolize something more than just the specific thing it is. We're fortunate to have two students read the story to us. Please focus your attention on symbols as you listen and look at the text. Thanks!
