#### Transcript of Book Thief Unit

Day One
Color Explanation & Prologue Discussion
Take a moment and make certain that you have written why you used the colors that you have.

After 5 minutes, we are going to share why we used the colors that we did in order to analyze the prologue and the narrator of Death.

How did Zusak use the Prologue to set the theme, tone, and background of the book just by using three colors?
Review Day: GrudgeCorn
Rules:
Teams of 4-5
Each team gets 10 X's
Each team will be asked a review question:
If they get it right, they can erase 2 X's
2 from one group
1 from two groups
When you lose all of your X's, then your team is out.
The only way your team can get back in is by answering a question right, and making a toss in the cornhole board
If no team can answer a question, each team will receive two X's, even those who had been eliminated.
GRUDGE Rules:
If a team gets an answer right, they have the option to toss a beanbag at the cornhole board. If the student gets the bag on the board, the team gets to erase 1 additional X. (3 total)

If they manage to get the beanbag into the hole, the team gets to erase 2 additional X's (4 total)

HOWEVER:
If a team chooses to get additional X's through the Grudge option, the team's being targeted have an option to block their X removal. They must make a bean toss and have it AT LEAST land on the board

Additionally. If the team trying to block manages to get the bag into the hole during the block toss, then the team trying to attack them loses the amount of X's that were to be inflicted on them are erased from the team who initiated the GRUDGE round.
The Book Thief
By: Markus Zusak
Museum Walk: 10 points
No talking.

Procedure:
While the music is playing (roughly 9 minutes) walk around the room and look at each of the eleven pictures that are hanging on the wall.
When you have found the one that you feel is the most powerful, sit underneath it.
Then get on the question of the day labeled "Museum Walk" and respond to these questions:
Think about the overall tone/mood of the time period. Which character do you feel best describes you in these situations, or would be most influential to you if you were living Liesel's life? (5 sentences and 1 example. Page # not required.) KEEP YOUR BOOK CLOSED, PLEASE!!

Character Development/ Other Important Facts
Imagery uses what?

1. I could hear the popping and crackling as mom dropped the bacon into the frying pan, and soon the salty, greasy smell wafted toward me.

2. Glittering white, the blanket of snow covered everything in sight.

3. The golden yellow sunlight filtered down through the pale new leaves on the oak trees, coming to rest on Jessica's brown toes that were splayed in the red Georgia mud.

Examples you have found.
Diction refers to
Word Selection

As a class, let's make a list of Forbidden Words

Get with your row and write three simple sentences using those forbidden words.

As a class, we will take one sentence from a few groups and draw an image based on the sentence to see the difference. Then, we will work to make the sentence more effective.

Talk about the character of Liesel. Where did she start? Has she changed? If yes, how has she changed.

Have any other characters changed? How?

Any other symbolism/ important events?

Detail
Syntax
Many really good blues guitarists have all had the last name King. They have been named Freddie King and Albert King and B.B. King. The name King must make a bluesman a really good bluesman. The bluesmen named King have all been very talented and good guitar players. The claim that a name can make a guitarist good may not be that far-fetched.

What makes a good bluesman? Maybe, just maybe, it's all in a stately name. B.B. King. Freddie King. Albert King. It's no coincidence that they're the royalty of their genre. When their fingers dance like court jesters, their guitars gleam like scepters, and their voices bellow like regal trumpets, they seem almost like nobility. Hearing their music is like walking into the throne room. They really are kings.

Shi-Tzu

defecated
a pile the size of Texas
. After the smell slithered its way through the house, slamming me in the face with its putrid odor, I dashed down the steps and looked around the living room. The beige walled space contained only a couch, a coffee table, and the tv stand, but a recent addition had been added near the front door. It glistened in the sunlight streaming in through the recently washed windows. I wanted to puke. I hollered at Miffy, searching for the culprit of this heinous act. When I found her, she was cowering in a corner. Her little body shaking. I picked her up to punish her, but then realized how terrified she must be. I held her to my stomach and gave her a hug. Her body relaxed. A warm sensation ran down my front. I had made the poor dog pee herself.

impacts the story and why Zusak would put that in his novel. (5 min)

Simile, Metaphor, or Personification. (10)

5th group: Read summary, answer discussion questions, look at the similes/metaphors, find out which objects are being compared, write out the
denotation
(using a dictionary) (5 min)

6th group: Read summary, answer discussion questions, look at the phrases from the previous group and the denotations to write the
connotations
of the words/phrase. (5 min)

7th group: Read summary, answer discussion questions, look at the connotations from before to talk about the
tone/mood
of the piece/narrator. (5 min)

8th group: Read summary, answer discussion questions, look at the tone of the book and see how it has helped create the
voice
of the author and supporting it with 1 piece of evidence from the book. (5 min)

9th group: Read summary, answer discussion questions, look at all of the information provided and start to put together a
theme
for the book. Why did Zusak write this book, especially if he has a narrator like Death that “spoils” the ending. (10 min)

10th group: will review all of the information from the stickies (including answering and analyzing all of the discussion questions, look at the
theme
provided by the last group, and change it in order to solidify it to share with the rest of the class. (5 min)

Debriefing the Stickies
Break it down part by part and see if our conclusions have lead us to a similar theme. If not, how can we work in order to create a theme for the book. Finally, how can we compare this theme to our essential questions/Class Theory about individualism and society? Once these are covered, we can open up the floor to have a discussion about other components of the book, such as: plot, the character of Death, Death’s take on humanity, whether or not Zusak is going to rip all of our hearts out in the end by killing off our favorite characters.

First, identify key events in the scene.

Second, Decide which new character you would like to tell the story from and which point of view, and then begin to think about how the events would happen if they were telling the story.

Third, using the POV listed above, reconstruct the story in the new POV and perspective.
Metaphor Review
Her mouth was a circle

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” –William Shakespeare

Love is an ocean

Life is a struggle

Eyes were saucers
Simile/Metaphor worsheet. Convert Similes into Metaphors and Metaphors into Similes.
Car Chase: G1 & G3
Which one is true?
People are good but evil when influenced by others
People are always inherently evil
People are inherently good
People are neither good nor evil, but neutral
There are a lot of moments in this section of the book that really hit us right in the emotional soft spot. One of these moments is when Max sneaks upstairs during a potential air raid in order to look at the stars. On page 378, Zusak writes, "Max lifted his head with great sorrow and great astonishment. 'There were stars,' he said. 'They burned my eyes.'"

To respond to this, think about Zusak's
DICTION
usage with the words "sorrow" and "astonishment." Think of their
DENOTATION
and
CONNOTATION
and the
TONE/MOOD
this creates. Then, think about the
PERSPECTIVE
of Max.

To answer this prompt, make sure that you talk about all of the words written in all capital letters above in a paragraph before giving me a single sentence as to what you think the importance of this scene is. So your answer should be a paragraph with AT LEAST 5 sentences in it.

Example: Sentence one (diction usage). Sentence two (this is what the words mean, but this is the feeling the words give us). Sentence three (Because of these words, Zusak sets this Tone/Mood) Sentence four (taking this tone/mood and looking at the character of Max and his perspective, this is the emotions behind the scene and why Max said this). Sentence five (I think that this is important to the overall book because...).
