Transcript of Do Now 2.11.15

On your sentence strips, three sentences in the ACTIVE voice and three in the PASSIVE voice.

Remember: ACTIVE= subject is doing the action; "The cat ate the rat."

PASSIVE=object is written as the subject; "The rat was eaten by the cat."

Consult your notes if you need more reminders!!!

When we're finished writing, we will be assigned a partner. You'll be re-writing your partner's ACTIVE sentences to be PASSIVE and their PASSIVE sentences to be ACTIVE.
“The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance, the wise grows it under his feet.”
-James Oppenheim
Do Now 2.11.15
Let's look at this week's WODs:


Here is the prompt. We are taking notes as we read to prepare to respond to this prompt:

You have read two texts and viewed one video about Harriet Tubman. The texts claim that Tubman was "the Moses of her people" because she, too, bravely led her people to freedom.
Write an essay that analyzes the strength of the claim related to Harriet's bravery in at least two of the three supporting materials.
Remember to
use textual evidence to support your ideas.
Harriet Tubman: Conductor of the Underground Railroad
Let's also take a look at the graphic organizer and think about where our evidence will likely fit.
What kinds of textual evidence did you write down? Let's share some.
On the next graphic organizer, continue to take notes focused on potential evidence to use in your essay analyzing the strength of the texts' claim that Tubman was a) brave and b) the Moses of her people.
Text 2: Harriet Tubman biography/informational text

You know what to do... copy the quote completely and accurately, including the author's name, and then, respond in a meaningful and thoughtful manner.
