Week 2: Lessons 5-9
Transcript of Week 2: Lessons 5-9
Warm Up: List as many types of figurative language that you can- provide an example of each-
Hint: A few examples are somewhere listed in this room Figurative Language-
language that is not intended to be taken literally but layered with meaning through the use of imagery, metaphors, and other literary devices How could the time period affect
the language an author uses?
More or less figurative language?
Harder to understand?
We do not understand the history??
We do not understand the references made? What other historical or cultural
factors might influence the author's
insect, what a plane or bird does,
the zipper on pants, and "cool" How does the historical or cultural context
of a text influence the author's use
of figurative language? Lesson 6: Types of Questions Effective Readers ask questions of the text
before, during, and after reading! Literal Questions:
Knowledge level- Fact based questions
Example: Who, What, When, Where, Why, How
Example: What color is the flag? Interpretive Questions:
Example: What does this mean?
Example: What does the American flag symbolize? Evaluative Questions:
Require the reader to consider his or her opinion
Example: Do you agree or disagree?
Example: Do you think the American Flag should have 13 stripes? Universal Questions:
relate to belief systems and values of
characters or the speaker
Universal questions take the reader
beyond the text
Example: If you had to create your own flag, what would it look like and why? "The Power does not lay in the answer,
but in the question."
- What do you think this means? Choose a section of the story that
stood out to you the most-
Using the four types of questions-
Write one example of each question-
for your section of text How can you use
questioning in the
"real world"? Turn to page 462 in your literature book
We will begin reading- The Scarlet Ibis While reading- on your index card-
-Jot down: What you think the scarlet ibis is and how is it important to the story? The Scarlet Ibis was written for
the summer of 1918

Served in US Army during WWII
Born/ Raised- North Carolina Lesson 7:
Positive, Negative, and Neutral Connotation Warm Up: Answer the following question
How can the Same words represent a
positive, negative, and neutral meaning?
Explain and provide examples-- Positive:
Discuss, inquisitive, ask
converse, curious, request
argue, nosy, beseech Sentence Examples:
The teacher lectured the poor innocent student.
I was studying all of the activity on my former best friend's Facebook page. Review:
the emotions or set of associations attached to a word that is implied rather than literal
the dictionary definition of a word; the literal meaning
the origin and history of a word Chef Vs. Cook
Teacher vs. Professor
slow vs. stupid
thrifty vs. tight-wad Lesson 7 Part II:
Upon meeting someone for the first time- what do you notice first? Vocabulary Introduction:
Foil: page R107 in literature book
copy definition into vocabulary notebook or on index card How does the use of a foil
help us better understand
the main characters
in a short story? What is a protagonist?
What is an antagonist?
How can you tell the difference? Characterization Handout How can learning to analyze characters
help you in the "real world"? Lesson 8:
Inductive Vs. Deductive Reasoning
1. Get your spirals out and
turn to the first section.
2. Write 5 facts/stats/opinions you have
about what you remember from 9/11/01
3. When finished: turn to the 5th section of your spiral (if you don't have a 5th section- get out a sheet of notebook paper for notes)
4. Wait quietly until everyone is finished Inductive Reasoning:
the process of determining general principles
by logic or observation from specific data; reasoning from parts to whole
Example: all ice I've ever felt is cold; therefore, all ice is cold Deductive Reasoning:
the process of logical reasoning from general principles to specific instances based on the assumed truth of the principle; reasoning from wholes to parts Complex Inference:
uses inductive and deductive reasoning Do you ever try to convince your parents to extend your curfew?
Or try to convince your teacher why you need a higher grade on a project?
Do you provide examples of "Why"? Value of proof in everyday life Today you will make complex inferences using deductive reasoning--
meaning you will be moving from a general conclusion or statement and you must prove it with specific textual evidence Was sherlock Holmes using inductive or deductive reasoning? We all gather ideas about someone based on how we have seen them behave--
If you see someone lurking around everyone's lockers in the locker room and then things come up missing--we usually start blaming that person-- right?
Although we aren't 100% sure they are guilty-- we can determine they should be looked at as a suspect what conclusions can be made from the film?
Write 1-3 sentences about what you have learned about inductive, deductive reasoning and complex inferences. What complex inferences can be
made in the short film? Lesson 9 Flashback:
an interjected scene that takes the narrative back in time from the current point the story has reached Foreshadowing:
the use of hints or clues in a narrative to suggest what action is to come Subplot:
a secondary or minor plot in a literary work which may contrast with the main plot, highlight it, or be completely unrelated Parallel Structure:
