Do Now:
Turn it in, Please!
Literary Elements in The Wizard of Oz
In the last and final box on your paper, write the date: 9/12/14

Then, CHOOSE one of the quotes and copy the quote and author.

Finally, write a thoughtful response to the quote: agree, disagree, summarize, interpret, evaluate...
"Isn't it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?"
-L.M. Montgomery

"Remember tonight... for it is the beginning of always."
-Dante Alighieri

"Fortunate people often hav very fortunate beginnings and very tragic endings. What matters isn't being applauded when you arrive-for that is common- but being missed when you leave.
-Baltasar Gracian
SWBAT define and exemplify literary terms using The Wizard of Oz as an anchor text.

SWBAT demonstrate understanding of the literary elements in The Wizard of Oz through completion of three assignments.
First, pass your DO NOWs to the left. THe people at the end of the horseshoes on the LEFT side will collect them neatly. Check to be sure your name is on the paper before you pass it LEFT.

Next, pass your AOW to the RIGHT. The people at the ends of the horseshoes on the RIGHT will neatly collect all AOWs. Again, check for your name!!
Remember, don't take notes as we watch the film. Just watch and notice things. Later, we will fill in our notes.
Wizard of Oz Tic-Tac-Toe project
Greek and Latin Roots:
During the quiz you must:
Keep your eyes on your own paper
Stay silent until all students are finished
When you finish you must:
Check your work
Do a silent and independent activity, like
drawing something on the back of the quiz
reading your IRB
free writing on notebook paper that you will take out ahead of time
Working with a partner of your choice, you will:
Choose three of the activities from the Tic-Tac-Toe board.
Collect the papers you need to complete your activities (Do NOT write on the assignment sheets. They will be reused)
Complete each assignment at a high level and turn all three in, with both your names on them.
Music Video Friday
Ok, here goes. Our first Music Video Friday. Remember, later in the school year, you will have the opportunity to choose a video for the class to analyze.

Here's how we will proceed:
First, we will read the lyrics to the song and treat them as a poem. The assignment is for you to try to make a claim about what the song means, or what it's mostly about, and then support your claim with evidence (words or phrases from the song that led you to your conclusion).

Next, we will watch the video and consider (and write about) how the visuals chosen to go with the song change its meaning.
