Transcript of Tuesday 1.6.15
Write today's date-1.6.15- in the SECOND box on the "do now" paper. You may cross out the first box.
Copy the quote and author completely and accurately. Respond in some meaningful way: analyze, summarize, paraphrase, raise a question, make a connection, agree, disagree, explain...
This week's topic will be EQUALITY. Consider, throughout the week, how equality relates to FAIRNESS.
Read silently for 15 minutes. Place your reading log on your desk to be collected. Please double check for your name.
I will be bringing you a new reading log as well as a Do Now paper. Leave your new reading log out if you would like me to sign for one line.
Article of the Week
Let's review our strategy: pre-read the questions CAREFULLY- this is as important as reading the article- and then annotate the text with purpose.
Because you are receiving this AOW a day late, we will now take TEN minutes to work on the article in class. Don't complete the FIRST or LAST question. Tomorrow in class I will show you the video version of the article. This will help you to do those two questions.

"Equality may perhaps be right, but no power on earth can ever turn it into a fact."
- Honore de Balzac
Please take your newly assigned seat with minimal complaining. As you know the seats are chosen randomly; this too shall pass!
As you may have noticed, we will NOT do a unit of roots this week. Instead, we will look up some new vocabulary associated with this week's story: "Harrison Bergeron."
To begin, let's learn about the story's author- Kurt Vonnegut. Here's a brief BIO.
Now, we will write a ten minute journal on the idea of equality. I know we already discussed some of this stuff during the DO NOW, but there is a lot to say. You don't have to respond to all the questions. Just do some real thinking.
Ok, now we are going to tackle the VOCABULARY. Turn to the study guide that follows the story. We will look up the words using dictionaries and define them on this page. Then, your task is to write a story, one that makes sense, that uses each of the words in a meaningful, correct way.
Next, we will define these literary terms.
This word contains the root "Chron" for time- think of "chronological".
-a thing belonging or appropriate to a period other than that in which it exists, especially a thing that is conspicuously old-fashioned.
"everything was as it would have appeared in centuries past apart from one anachronism, a bright yellow construction crane"
Remember this one from our Wizard of Oz literary terms review?
-an expression designed to call something to mind without mentioning it explicitly; an indirect or passing reference.
"an allusion to Shakespeare"
synonyms: reference to, mention of, suggestion of, hint to, intimation of, comment on, remark on
"the town's name is an allusion to its founding family"
- the time, place and mood of the events of the story
the angle of considering things, which shows us the opinion, or feelings of the individuals involved in a situation.
In literature, point of view is the mode of narration that an author employs to let the readers “hear” and “see” what takes place in a story,
poem, essay etc.
Because we have done SO much work with theme already, I'd like you to write your own definition for this one.
Satire is a technique employed by writers to expose and criticize foolishness and corruption of an individual or a society by using humor, irony, exaggeration or ridicule. It intends to improve humanity by criticizing its follies and foibles. A writer in a satire uses fictional characters, which stand for real people, to expose and condemn their corruption.
