Purpose: In this short story, Sabine R. Ulibarri reveals a theme through the symbols and conflict in the story. What are they? What is the theme of the story?
Task: Record unclear words/ideas, highlight in yellow phrases that tell about the narrator's response to the stories about the white horse, underline details that tell why the narrator wants to capture the white horse, and think about the lessons you can take from them noting the themes. Participate in the collaborative discussion.
Outcome: Participate in a "Hot Seat" by coming up with questions to ask the boy, the father, and the horse to better understand their feelings throughout the story.
Purpose: In the short story, "Eleven", the main character responds and changes to story events. How does the authors word choice and tone create a compelling character? How does Rachel respond to various events?
Task: Record unclear words/ideas, highlight in yellow words that have an impact on the meaning and tone, underline examples of different types and lengths of sentences, including fragments. Note how you would describe the tone of the passage. Participate in collaborative discussion.
Outcome: Discussion on the role of Mrs. Price.
Purpose: These two articles, one an editorial and the other a commentary, are opposing viewpoints about having wild animals as pets. What facts and examples are used to justify the points? Which points are convincing and which are not?
Task: Record unclear words/ideas, highlight in yellow words that are examples of loaded language, note whether the argument would be as strong without the loaded language. Underline the author's claim and highlight in green each piece of evidence to support the claim. Note if you think the evidence supports the claim in a logical way. Participate in the collaborative discussion.
Outcome: Write an opinion essay telling whether or not you would own a particular exotic animal and why.
Purpose: Both poems use figurative language and develop tones that are distinct.
How do I describe the tone? Why? What is the author really saying?
Task: Highlight similes in one color and metaphors in another and keep notes on what you think each mean. Highlight words and details that helps to understand each poet's attitude towards the subject matter. Participate in the collaborative discussion.
Outcome: Create a poem to express your views about a freedom you enjoy, or about the freedom to have an opinion at all.
